The Department and Fund for Children and Youth were created in order to provide a sustainable funding stream for youth-serving organizations in Richmond and North Richmond. This will be done by providing grant funding to various organizations serving Richmond and North Richmond youth under the age of 24. The first grants will be distributed by July 2021.
The Department of Children and Youth would like to thank all Richmond and North Richmond community members that applied to join the Richmond Fund for Children and Youth Oversight Board. Oversight Board members have been appointed and will guide the development of a community needs assessment, a strategic investment plan, and the allocation of funds for chosen youth-serving organizations. To learn more about the Oversight Board, please visit our Oversight Board webpage.
Hours of Operation: 8:30 am - 5:00 pm Monday - Friday Physical Address: 450 Civic Center Plaza, Suite 300 Richmond, CA 94804
Strategic Investment Plan Now Available!
The City of Richmond’s Department of Children and Youth (RDCY) is excited to share its Strategic Investment Plan (available here).
Following months of interviews, focus groups, surveys, and community forums, RDCY and Hatchuel Tabernik & Associates have compiled data, comments, and priority areas that address the needs and gaps in service for Richmond and North Richmond youth.
In the Loop is a quarterly newsletter shared by the Department of Children and Youth to ensure that Richmond and North Richmond community members are aware of the work being done by Department staff and their various partners to enhance the lives of children, youth, and families across Richmond and North Richmond.
The Department and Fund for Children and Youth were created as a result of the hard work of local youth, individuals, and community organizations to provide a sustainable funding stream for youth-serving organizations in Richmond and North Richmond.
Department staff recognizes these efforts and the importance of keeping the Richmond and North Richmond communities in the loop about the work being done to support children and youth.
