Vista, CA —Resilience Opens New Doors -Vista Community Clinic’s Resilience Program has a new reason to celebrate. On Monday, October 4th, the Resilience team will open the doors to a new building for its youth-based program. Started in 2018, Resilience was created to serve high–risk youth and young adults, ages 12 to 24, within the Oceanside and North County areas who are on probation or leaving juvenile detention. The program uses the mentorship of those with first-hand experience to assist in the rehabilitation of youth offenders and reduce the rates of recidivism. And the work has shown great success, helping 106 local young men and women to date.
For program mentors and youth participants, the new building means they have a nearby place to go that’s just for them, and that makes a difference. The grand opening will include a ribbon cutting ceremony that will commence at 6:30 pm at 4055 Oceanside Boulevard, Suite D, in Oceanside. The public is invited to join in on the celebration, and masks are required once indoors. Questions on the event, or how one can help support this program, can be directed to Program Manager Jimmy Figueroa, by phone: (760) 473-9650 or email: Jaime.firstname.lastname@example.org
