Guided by the principles outlined in the preamble to the Economic Opportunity act of 1964 to “eliminate the paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty”, YCCAC believes that all individuals deserve the opportunity to live full and meaningful lives, with a warm and safe place to call home, reliable transportation, affordable health care, nutritious food and, above all, a sense of purpose within a safe and supportive community.
