youth financial assistance program
One of the CVCT Collaborative's core programs is providing financial assistance to organizations and individuals in the east Coachella Valley that need help in placing at-risk youth into needed programs and services. The objective of this core service is to make sure at-risk youth are not left behind because of a lack of resources to get the programs and services needed to succeed.
Over the past 5 years over 1000 youth in the east Coachella Valley have received financial help in gaining access to needed programs and services. Our process for financial assistance includes requesting financial help through an application form, review by the CVCT Financial Support Chairperson, and approval by the CVCT Collaborative Board of Directors. A 2020 survey done by HARC showed 80% of the recipients indicated the financial assistance "was extremely" helpful. The survey also showed that 50% of the requests for help came from individuals and 50% came from our collaborative partners to serve specific at-risk youth in their programs.
The success of this program drives the CVCT Collaborative Board of Directors to continue to seek funding so that no youth in the east Coachella Valley is denied the services or opportunity to participate due to financial inability.
