Our mission is to improve and empower the lives of California’s youth.

Today’s Youth are faced with a myriad of complex and difficult issues and often lack an adequate support system to transition successfully into adulthood. In response, The California Coalition for Youth (CCY) provides strong statewide policy leadership around issues concerning disconnected runaway and homeless youth and provides direct support to youth and families through our program, the California Youth Crisis Line.
