YES Outreach Center is located at 2602 Harney Street, Omaha, NE.
Their mission is to serve youth who are experiencing homelessness and near-homelessness by providing critically needed resources which empowers them to become self-sufficient. Street Outreach workers hit the streets searching for youth in crisis. The youth are invited in to the Outreach Center for a warm meal, a shower, health care and other support services. Family style living is provided at their Emergency Shelter where youth ages 16-20 can stay for up to 3 weeks. Staff assist in developing a plan for their immediate needs. Transitional Living is provided in apartment-style housing for youth 16-21 for a maximum of 18 months. They work closely with advocates to help them become independent. During this time they must be working or in school. The Maternity Group Home provides a family-style residence for pregnant youth for a maximum of 18 months. The Rapid Rehousing Program helps youth 16-24 live in their own apartment while YES subsidizes rent and support as needed.
