Plumas Lake is a master planned community which began in 2003 and is thirty miles north of Sacramento and ten miles south of Marysville in Yuba County California. Based on the latest Census, the population of Plumas Lake in 2010 was 5,853. This is the location where our story begins.
The idea to create this non profit 501c3 organization, Youth and Family Opportunities Unlocked (YFOU) was born out of the fact Plumas Lake lacked any significant spaces in which to provide more opportunities and activities for children, families and adults. As a result, when our organization was formed in the fall of 2015 we initially felt our mission was to build a multi-purpose community center facility which would provide that much needed space to be of benefit to the residents of South Yuba County.
In 2017 as the YFOU organization learned more about the Olivehurst Public Utility District’s (OPUD) future plans to build a community center in Plumas Lake our plans changed. Since OPUD already has land on which to build a community center and money is being set aside each time a new home is built as a part of the master planned community, we are in the process of seeking to partner with OPUD to raise money to help the utility district be able to build the community center faster.
