For 2012, our members selected Youth Emergency Services (YES) as our charity.
YES Outreach Center is located at 2602 Harney St., Omaha, NE. YES is the Safety net for the homeless or at risk youth in Omaha and surrounding communities. They currently operate four different programs to assist the youth: Transitional Living, Maternity Group Home, Emergency Shelter and Street Outreach.
In 2010-2011 they assisted more than 800 homeless and at risk youth. Many staff and volunteers offer a safe a caring environment to address the immediate needs youth have for housing, food, safety, counseling and medical to name a few. YES is on the forefront of locating youth on the streets and getting them the appropriate help they need to get through a time of crisis. Services are provided free of charge to all at risk youth.
