Make a Donation In-Kind

As an advocacy organization that does not provide direct services to youth, we don’t have a need for clothing or other in-kind donations. However, we encourage you to reach out to a youth program near you. You can find the youth shelter closest to you HERE.

Stay tuned, an expanded CHY site is under construction…
