Hayden Hurst Family Foundation and Youth Crisis Center Hosting First Golf Tournament

The very first Hayden Hurst Family Foundation Golf Tournament will take place on Deercreek Country Club on February 24, 2020. Hayden established the Hayden Hurst Family Foundation in 2018 as a way to provide funding to programs that address mental health issues and provide mental health services to teens.

Hayden recently opened up about his own struggles with mental health during the NBC Sports documentary, “Headstrong: Mental Health and Sports.” The Jacksonville-native and Bolles explained his struggles with mental health while playing football in college. He explained that based on where he is right now, he thinks reaching out for help is more “manly” than sitting in silence and suffering.

“I didn’t get the help that I needed and it just really started affecting who I was,” Hayden told the camera.

The Youth Crisis Center

Hayden adopted the Youth Crisis Center as one of his organizations to help benefit those who are seeking help with their mental health in Northeast Florida. YCC was founded in 1974, as Florida’s first runaway program. It has grown to one of the largest and best-known nationally accredited providers of services for youth and families. The Youth Crisis Center’s emphasis on care is for those have been exposed to traumatic situations such as divorce, homelessness, relocation, loss of life, bullying and abuse.

The Youth Crisis Center offers several programs such as SNAP®, Family Link, Outpatient Behavioral Health, Transitional Living Programs, and a Residential Program. The House of Hope program is currently in the works at YCC. The Youth Crisis Center is partnering with Changing Homelessness and JASMYN to create a residential facility that would provide early intervention services to members of the LGBTQ community. The House of Hope will also include a safe place to stay where clients will have their physical, emotional and mental well-being needs to be met

Butterfly Garden Luncheon Review

On Friday, November 17th Youth Crisis Center held the first annual Butterfly Garden Luncheon, Celebrating Wings of Change.

The Butterfly Garden Luncheon provided an opportunity for guests to learn about the innovative direction YCC is taking to identify the long-term impact of trauma, provide early intervention services, and introduce our collaborative efforts with JASMYN to address the need for emergency housing for the growing number of homeless youth on the First Coast. Before the luncheon, our wonderful sponsors, donors, partners, and supporters were invited for a House of Hope concept tour and then helped put the finishing touches on our newly planted butterfly garden. The luncheon was held on our campus where sponsors enjoyed a catered lunch while learning how their contributions could help YCC build a healthier community by empowering young people and families to rise above adversity.

Please click HERE to read more about the House of Hope collaboration with JASMYN.

We can’t thank our sponsors enough, and we hope to see you all next year!

The luncheon was full of activities for guests including the House of Hope concept tour, sponsors laying bricks, community partners completing YCC's butterfly garden and listening to guest speakers.
