Transforming the lives of at-risk youth and their families in Everett

The city of Everett is growing rapidly. As the largest city in Snohomish County, it is anticipated to double in size in the next decade. Under the shadow of wealth, growth and opportunity are kids in need. YFC is there to reach them. 

Consider these stats about Everett/Snohomish County: 

  • 1 in 5 youth in Everett have seriously considered ending their lives
  • 4 in 5 youth in the Casino Road neighborhood live below the poverty line. 
  • Gang activity has jumped by 75% in the last year.
  • There are around 400 active gang members in Everett and recruiting youth as young as 10 years old. 
  • Much of the violence in south Snohomish County involves gang members just 14 years old.
  • 3 in 10 teens will get pregnant at least once before age 20.
  • More than 50% of teen mothers never graduate from high school
  • Over 500 different youth were admitted into a detention facility this year. 

But, through our City Life ministry, we are catching kids before they fall through the cracks.
