Ladera Ranch YMCA
"In America, the zip code you're born in can determine your future. The Y's programs and services create opportunities to succeed, no matter where you grow up."

Every child, regardless of their zip code, cultural background, or home life, deserves the same chance at living their best lives. Every child deserves to go to a safe place after school; to make friends with people they would otherwise never have crossed paths with; to learn how to make the right choice over the easy choice; to stand up for what is right and develop the passion to follow their dreams. Every child deserves to be loved and cared for, in a judgment-free and anti-bias space.
Yet, 1 in 4 kids are left home alone each day after school. There are kids who walk home in the downpour of rain because parents have to juggle two jobs. There are students who don't make it to school because they "ran out of clothes." There are students who are sent to the Y with moldy lunches and expired juice boxes.
And these struggles are just within our immediate community of Ladera Ranch and Mission Viejo. What about those who live outside those boundaries? Or those who live within but are quiet in their hardship?
We can't change the hardship, but we can help positively influence the lives of those in our care. Help our community. Spread love. Cultivate kindness.
