How are we funded?

We are supported by our generous community. Year after year we are blown away by the hearts in the Coastal Bend (and beyond). Youth Odyssey joins forces with individuals, businesses, and foundations to help make our mission a reality in the lives of at-risk youth here in our backyards. Chances are, you know someone who has benefited from our programs. We hope you will consider becoming partners with us in creating a brighter future for our community’s youth.
