The duties of this commission are to support a comprehensive system of services and advance policies to meet the needs of Corpus Chrisit's children, youth and their families.


Data Collection Project:


In 2009, the CCY commissioned Dr. Philip Phoades with the Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi to complete the Data Collection Project. This study provides demographic and statistical information on the risk factors that can impact the health and well-being of our community's youth and families. The risk factors analyzed in Nueces County include:


  • Socio-economic status of families

  • Family management stressers

  • Reported cases of teen pregnancy and STDs

  • Youth alcohol and drug use facts

  • Adult alcohol and drug use facts

  • Education statistics


Understanding these risk factors can help organizations develop prevention and intervention programs, services and partnerships that effectively meet the needs of youth in our community. In addition to program development, this information can be utilized to secure grant funds from state, federal and private grant programs. Read more.
