Yreka Community Resource Center has been providing free activities to the community for 15 years. By providing Resource Center services in a central location, the 19,000 sq. ft. building it is housed in has been utilized to its maximum capacity.
We have over 20 different programs and services. We want the entire community to feel welcome here – not just families and not just children. Our mission statement is “Resources for All!” We strive to either provide services or hook people up to the services they need. Last year, over 2,000 books were given to children, 306 family events were held, 762 individuals were provided clothing, 3,288 referrals were made, and over $18,000 in Assistance grants were provided.
