Youth Emergency Services and Shelter (YESS)

The YESS expansion is up and running!

May 5, 2015

“Your gift to the agency is doing BIG things – thank you for believing in us!!”

The kids started using the new classrooms, therapy spaces, and volunteer room the week of March 23! The first eight bedrooms opened April 1, and within four hours, all were spoken for. We had 56 kids wake up at the shelter this morning, the youngest a one-year-old in the crisis nursery. 32 total beds in the addition…next eight will open July 1, eight more in 2016, and last eight in 2017. 

Growth plan allows for funding and staffing to keep pace.
