About Us


The mission of East Tenth United Methodist Children and Youth Center, Inc. is to provide a safe place where the spiritual, emotional, educational, and physical needs of children, youth, and their families are responded to in a holistic approach.


The Center is an outreach initiative of East Tenth United Methodist Church. After conducting a survey and many focus groups, it was clear that the neighborhood was in need of a safe place where the children and youth could go to learn and grow. A Board of Directors was chosen in April of 1995 and an executive director hired in March of 1996. The Center is incorporated and is registered with the IRS as a not-for-profit organization with 501(c) 3 status. We celebrated 20 years in March of 2016!

This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
