Community Youth Development

Community Youth Development (CYD) aims to decrease existing juvenile crime in the communities, as determined by Texas Health and Human Services Commission. The state funds are granted to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, and TRIAD chooses and manages the subcontractors who deliver the CYD services to youth in the community.

The Gulfton CYD program is currently available to youth ages 10 to 17 who live in or attend school in zip code 77081. Services are also available to any student who attends the following schools:

Wisdom High School

Services address situations that lead to juvenile crime. Examples of available services include:

CYD services are free to Gulfton residents. If you or a youth you know is in need of CYD services, contact Cristal Atilano (Gulfton CYD Coordinator) 832-526-3596.
