Like other peer Youth Assistance Programs throughout Hamilton County, local volunteers develop and provide access to programs and services that promote positive growth experiences and enhance home and community relationships.  

Grants from the Crosser Family Foundation are rooted in the belief that philanthropy should be compassionate and responsible, provide opportunity and justice, and support diversity in the community. The organization aims to support innovative organizations and projects that build strong communities that support housing, health and wellness, and youth development.
