Golden 1 Credit Union is Fighting Youth Homelessness

Sacramento, CA - In 2017, Golden 1 Credit Union in Sacramento, Calif., pledged to contribute $1 million over three years to establish the Wind Youth Center, which promotes the safety, shelter, and self-determination of youth experiencing homelessness.

The center aims to break the cycle of youth homelessness by providing much-needed resources such as mental health counseling, career and education services, and access to permanent housing.

With early intervention, homeless youth are less likely to become chronically homeless adults.

Golden 1 also donated $165,000 to three other organizations dedicated to combating youth homelessness.

These organizations “all meet a critical need in their communities to reduce the number of youth without a safe place to call home,” says Erica Taylor, vice president of communications and community relations for the $12 billion asset credit union.

"Working together, we can save kids and young adults from this crisis,” she says. “These organizations all embody Golden 1’s community giving strategy: Make the communities we serve stronger.”
