Together, we are in the center of a difficult and uncertain time in our communities. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Coalition for Youth (CCY) is committed to supporting youth, families, and youth allies 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week through our California Youth Crisis Line. CCY has been providing crisis support to California's Youth for almost 40 years and we've found that our services are needed now more than ever.
As an essential communication system for California's youth experiencing homelessness, runaway youth, and youth/families experiencing crisis, CCY is hearing firsthand how this pandemic is causing mental, physical, and emotional challenges to our state's most vulnerable population.
Our top priority is to continue being a resource and service to our community through our California Youth Crisis Line. Our well-trained staff of dedicated volunteers and crisis counselors are still available 24/7 by calling or texting (800) 843-5200 or online through our chat portal via
Our staff and volunteers are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by listening to young people's concerns, helping youth navigate their own personal crises, and providing youth and families with the coping skills and resources needed to get them back on track.
During these times we must band together and support one another as best as we can. Please visit our website,
