About Us

WHY Sac (We Help Youth Sacramento) provides the connection for youth to a community network of youth serving agencies.  We are working to create a safety net for ALL vulnerable youth in Sacramento.


So what does WHY do?

  • Link YOUth to Services
  • Assist YOUth with Accessing Services
  • Follow-Up on Referrals
  • Prevent YOUth from Falling Through The Cracks!!

WHO is served???

WHY’s goal is to improve the health and well-being of all youth (0-30) with a focus on those who are homeless, near homeless, system based, “aging out”, gang involved, runaway, and LGBTQ through collaborative, coordinated, referral management.
