food pantry and distribution 

We understand that families face challenges that makes it difficult to provide for the basic necessities.  One thing a family should never have to go out with is food.  We have monthly food distribution every second Thursday of the month at the Parlier Community Center at 9am.  We also have an Emergency Food Pantry throughout the month for those families who are struggling to put food on the table.

Fresno unified Parent University

​YCA has had the privilege of partnering with Fresno Unified's Parent University Program for 5 years now.  We have seen the growth of this program from year one and continue to be a strong partner in their efforts to educate and inform parents about their school district.  Click on the link below to learn more about the great work Parent University is doing in Fresno.

Our focus here at YCA is to fill any voids in our community.  Having health insurance is a need for everyone.  Our purpose is to be able to assist families in the enrollment process to ensure that they receive coverage, if eligible, so that their family is covered.  You can call and schedule an appointment or we also take walk-ins from 9-4pm, Monday thru Friday.
