Our expansive programs provide individualized support for all community members based on their needs. This holiday, YOU can give the gift of wellness by supplying gifts for the children we serve in our underserved communities and bring light to a child’s season.

It’s easy!
  1. SIGN-UP starting November 4 and we will assign you a child and provide their wish list within 48 hours.
  2. SHOP the wishlist – OR – DONATE and we’ll shop for you!
  3. DELIVER your unwrapped gifts to our office – OR – SHIP them when you shop online
  4. SMILE and know you made a difference for a child!


“Our family has struggled with homelessness, hunger, mental illness and hopelessness, so the holidays have always been so hard… but we never had to struggle alone once we found CYN. We made it through because of them, and now the winter is a time to celebrate again.” – Parent of 3, Intact Families
