Youth Emerging Stronger’s (YES) mission is to provide runaway, homeless and foster youth with safety, stability and housing, along with the relationships and resources to thrive now and in the future.
YES’ comprehensive program services address mental health challenges and teach the skills/mindset needed to meet individualized goals in education, workforce readiness and life skills.
“I was born into dysfunction. Running away only made things worse. A friend told me about YES as an alternate to living in an alley. I didn’t know that programs like this existed for people like me. They took care in making sure I stay on the growth track we created together. YES allowed me to see my self-worth.”
“No contribution is too small for challenges as big as homelessness. Each one of us -as individuals or organizations- are community members and as such, must strive to reach beyond our own abilities and collaboratively ensure that we have a fair and impartial society for all.”
