Youth Services Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
Prior to receiving Youth Services grant funding, the Union of Pan Asian Communities was unable to address the specific needs of youth and young adults impacted by teen dating violence. Funding has allowed for the allocation of space specifically designated to those who are negatively impacted by dating violence. Hiring a Program Manager/Therapist and a part-time Youth Mentor has assisted in providing targeted services in San Diego’s City Heights, Southeast San Diego, and area communities. Because the Helping Empower Authentic Relationships for Teens program is unique to the community, funding has assisted in bringing this needed service to those in San Diego who were previously underserved.
