Helping Children Thrive
Through family-centered, integrated mental health services, the Masonic Center for Youth and Families (MCYAF) helps children and adolescents, ages 4 to 24, enjoy healthier, happier, and more fulfilling lives – at home, at school, and in the future.
We work closely with each family to develop customized care plans that meet every client’s unique needs. Our multidisciplinary team of experienced professionals offers practical solutions for everyday problems and helps families to restore harmony and healthy relationships.
MCYAF services are provided by licensed, professional clinicians.
The Masonic Center for Youth and Families is a not-for-profit service of the Masonic Homes of California, an advocate for youth and seniors for more than 110 years. MCYAF exemplifies California Masons’ focused and fierce commitment to the belief that all young people should be empowered to realize their full potential.
To contribute to our non-profit, please make a donation to the California Masonic Foundation.
In 1898, the spirit of Masonic charity and the need to assist the widows and orphans of Masons led to the creation of the Masonic Homes of California. A California nonprofit corporation, the Masonic Homes of California provides care and support to Masons and their wives, widows, and families through two senior residential communities and statewide outreach services. To learn more about the programs and services offered through the Masonic Homes of California, visit masonichome.org.
Our services are funded through the generous donations of California Masons. Please join them in giving today.
Masonry is the world’s first and largest fraternal organization, and is based on the belief that each man has a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Through our culture of philanthropy, we make a profound difference for our brothers, our families, our communities, and our future.
The mission of the Masons of California, to foster personal growth and improve the lives of others, is carried out through Masonic principles and tradition.
Our mission is guided by the enduring and relevant principles of our fraternity:
- Brotherly love. We value respect, freedom, kindness, tolerance, and our differences – religious, ethnic, cultural, social, generational, and educational – and strive for harmony in our individual lives, in our lodges, and in the global community.
- Relief. We take responsibility for the well-being of our brothers, our families, and the community as a whole. We provide relief through philanthropy, community involvement, and delivery of excellent care.
- Truth. We stay true to our personal code of conduct and ethics – honor, integrity, personal responsibility, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.
