Help HYCC Grow : Forward into the Future

In 2015, residents came together to Raise the Roof for a new HYCC. We are very thankful to the dozens of donors who helped us expand our community space by 800 sq. ft to include a teen space, media center, and gallery. We got a new kitchen, much needed additional storage, an office for HYCC staff and were able to have ADA upgrades. The expansion also included a "deep energy retrofit," which means that we currently occupy and own a cool and energy efficient building !

In July of 2017, Liz Miranda was hired as the new Executive Director of HYCC.

Now that we have an awesome building and a new Director, we need to get our space and team ready for growing our programs! This Giving Tuesday we want you to Grow with us! Our vision for the next three years is all about growing in size and impact.

We want to become a home for hope and healing, as well as, grow our staff and Board, financial resources, space, and youth programs.

We will focus on five major goals from 2017-2018.

  • Grow our resources in order to build a state of the art and youth-friendly Digital Media Lab and Multi-purpose space where residents of all ages can read, curate and share stories, learn Photography, Dance and Theater; have a safe space during out of school time and even learn Entrepreneurship, and even STEM.
  • Grow our landscape on our Roxbury land where will expand the Outdoor Learning Lab & Oasis
    to offer more community Farming, Gardening and Therapeutic Horticulture for residents suffering from Trauma.
  • Grow our team by adding capacity with a new Program Coordinator role, and adding additional part-time artists, educators, cooks and farmers!
  • Grow our Board and our newly formed Friends of HYCC group
  • Grow our partnerships and deepen our impact in Urban Agriculture, the Arts, Environmental Justice and innovative Youth Development.

In order to make this happen, we need you to Grow with us.

Please help us move FORWARD into the FUTURE and consider making an investment that will help us continue to make a difference in Roxbury.

Thank you for being a part of our story.
