The Laramie Youth Crisis Center (LYCC) is a community prevention program of the Cathedral Home for Children. Its mission is "...to protect and preserve families by providing a variety of services which strengthen and help youth and their families build the skills they need." LYCC provides emergency and shelter care for youth through the age of 17, a 24-hour hot line, and professional support for families. It is an alternative to jail and detention for children who have committed less serious offenses. It also provides a "time out" that prevents serious problems from escalating. LYCC is open for service 24/7 throughout the entire year. LYCC does not charge a fee for their services.
This year, LYCC is asking for our help in providing materials for youth activities. Please keep in mind that, as they do not serve many young children, items should be geared to ages 12 to 18. Also, materials that represent violence and aggression should be avoided.
