Ypsilanti Community Schools Resiliency Center

Ypsilanti Community Schools (YCS) supports students and families during the school year thru various programs and initiatives.  As we move through this difficult time and into 2021, we are proud to announce the Ypsilanti Community Schools Resiliency Center (YCSRC). 

The Center will be a central point of access for families in need of resources.  The Resiliency Center will provide a constant space for donation drop-off and cataloging, plus students' basic needs such as clothing, school supplies, personal hygiene products, emergency food, and more.  This center will also be a resource for our community partners who work directly with our YCS students and families. 

The Ypsilanti Community Schools Resiliency Center will serve over 300 individuals within the first month as we plan to provide holiday assistance immediately. If you need assistance during the holiday, please fill out the attached form.
