Where did the year go?
YMCA staffer Alex Costumbrado, left, gives visitors a tour last week at the Casino Road Youth Development Center. It has been nearly a year since the Mukilteo Family YMCA opened the facility in Children’s Village, 14 E. Casino Rd., which has served about 200 youth since September 2011.
A needs assessment in 2010 identified the Casino Road neighborhood as the area in Snohomish County with the “greatest level of poverty across the age spectrum.”
The center provides a range of services, including a Minority Achievers Program and Code Teen, programs that assist youth with homework and exposure to college and career opportunities. For information on how you can help, call 425-518-8050.
