Join the YFC Auxiliary

The Auxiliary plays an important role in fundraising for YFC, and members have a lot of fun in the process!

The primary work of the Auxiliary is planning and hosting our annual Gala, which takes place each fall. You can express your creativity by helping to design auction displays or table centerpieces, or exercise your organizational skills by serving on the auction or raffle committee. All of these preparations culminate in a lovely event that you will enjoy sharing with your friends, and be proud of your part in raising money for affordable counseling services.

In addition to working on the Gala, the Auxiliary meets each quarter to socialize and enjoy educational presentations on parenting or mental health issues.
