There are many ways you can support CYN

We believe every person has the right to quality mental health services regardless of income. Therefore, many of our programs are free of charge or offered on a sliding scale.

Our ability to raise funds so that we can continue to offer counseling services at a reduced rate is critical to many Lake County residents.
