The soon-to-be-launched “Youth & Community Connect” app is a first-of-its-kind, community collaborative youth resource app hosted by the District Attorney’s Office, in partnership with Always Knocking, Inc., La Familia Counseling Center and Brother to Brother.
The app is also endorsed by Blue Shield of California, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Sacramento Area, Sac Connect, Asian Resources, Inc., City of Refuge, Chicks in Crisis and the City of Sacramento’s Office of Violence Prevention.
This is the first app specifically dedicated to youth and their families, linking them directly to resources and services provided by community and faith-based organizations, schools as well as city, county and other government agencies that provide youth services within Sacramento County. The app is free to join and will be free to use. Features include:
Registration is now open! Local organizations are asked to register to be included in the app. To register your organization or to learn more, visit sacyouthconnect.org. Participating nonprofit organizations must be a 501(c)(3) and have insurance.
A follow-up announcement will be made about the app launch and community roll-out plans.
“The Youth & Community Connect app is a powerful mobile tool that will make it easier for youth and their families to access resources and services available to them,” states DA Anne Marie Schubert. “I believe if we connect with our youth through outreach, education and intervention, we create a stronger and healthier community for everyone.”
