Wish List

As a nonprofit with a mission to provide a wide-variety of expert services, our agency relies on the generosity of community members. We are fortunate to receive a number of grants to support our work. However, many of our funding sources do not cover some of the everyday items we need for basic functions. Thank you for your consideration. All donations to Tahoe Youth are tax deductible!
