VCOF Youth Programs - at C.C. Cloud Youth Center - offer a safe environment to youth at risk of self-destructive behaviors due to unstable homelife. In 1987, VCOF recognized the special needs of children whose parents were active military, veterans, battling substance abuse addiction or were incarcerated. The "house of faith and hope" gives children a feeling of security through small groups led by dedicated adult leaders.
Youth Programs include after school, summer camp and community weekend recreation providing structured educational, art, recreational and intervention programming. The youth programs emphasize leadership development, community engagement and service to others.
VCOF recognizes that quality childcare is a buffer against unemployment and homelessness for veterans and low-income families. Our youth programs are open to all children from military or non-military families.
