CYS is proud to announce it recently received a $50,000 general operating support grant from the S. Mark Taper Foundation.
The Foundation shares CYS’ goal of improving the quality of life and life outcomes for vulnerable youth living in the most underserved communities of Los Angeles County. The S. Mark Taper Foundation is dedicated to addressing the systemic disenfranchisement of people on the basis of race, gender identity, sexual orientation and/or disability.
Grant funds received will be used to provide diversion services to vulnerable youth between the ages of 9 and 18, who are at risk of becoming involved with the justice system. Services offered will include restorative justice mediation programs, customized case plan management, and services navigation that will connect youth with appropriate and proven health and mental health providers.
