Give to Class Scholarship Challenge
  • " Every gift to the College is so appreciated, and every gift is used wisely. A college education is so important, even more so than when I earned my degrees."

  • " YHC offered me the warmth and care I needed as an 18 year old moving away from home. YHC also challenged me to be great. Great futures truly start at YHC and giving back can help another teenager leaving home succeed."
