Your Crisis Contact (YCC)
YCC is a support group for the Indian Community in Minneapolis and St. Paul with a goal of providing guidance, encouragement and much needed moral support in hours of extreme need and crisis.
Our community is growing, with that growth comes tremendous achievements and several accomplishments we all can be proud of. As with any growth, there will be various crisis situations or challenges faced by members of our community which may be insurmountable to face or manage it alone.
The inspiration for the group of people to come together, came from the realization that there are unmet needs in the community and together we can make a difference.
Our community is accomplished, experienced, caring, and well connected – together we can make a difference. We plan to offer support to the families or to an individual in any overwhelming situation by connecting them to the right resources, so that the outcome is not left to chance, but is rooted in guidance and encouragement.
There are other organizations in Twin Cities who are providing similar services, however we feel that the broader community is not aware of the available services and resources. YCC can increase the reach to a broader community and help address the unmet needs.
● IT Professionals
● Social Workers
● Business men
● Much More..
