Summer Meals Needed to Feed Homeless Youth

Because of you, homeless youth in our community DON'T GO HUNGRY -- and we are SO GRATEFUL!

However, looking ahead into July and August, our meal signups are SPARSE... AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Please SIGN UP to donate a meal or meals to help homeless youth in our community.

Starting TODAY, meals can once again be HOMEMADE, although we still appreciate catered and frozen meals!

Without your help, they can go for days without a meal.

Meals should be large enough to feed between 20 and 25 youth. Further details can be found on our Meals Donation Page*.

Please contact Maren with any questions.

Thank you for signing up today so our youth don't go hungry!

*Your donations are tax deductible.

YES Receives Program Grants

Youth Emergency Services (YES) received grants recently from both the Lincoln Financial Foundation and American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation.

YES plans to use the Lincoln Financial Foundation grant to fund its continuum of services programming. All financial focus remains on providing food, shelter and programming for youth experiencing homelessness and near-homelessness in the Omaha community. 

Similarly, the American Family Insurance Dreams Foundation grant will be use to fund YES' Emergency Shelter.

“We are so grateful to once again receive grants from these foundations, which do so much to give back to the community,” said Director of Development Barb Farho.

“As life continues to be challenging due to the pandemic, it is encouraging to know that people are still focused on how they can help.”

Grants like these help YES continue to provide programs, services and resources for homeless and near-homeless youth in our community. We are #sograteful!
YES Shows its Pride!

LGBTQIA+ youth are 120 percent more likely to experience homelessness than all other young people, according to True Colors United.

Watch for us in the Pride Parade Saturday, July 10, and be sure to stop by the YES table at the Heartland Pride event July 9-10 at Baxter Aren.

Learn more about the services and resources we provide LGBTQIA+ youth needing safe housing, education and/or employment and, in some cases, escape from trafficking and traffickers in conjunction with the Women's Center for Advancement's Indigo Program.

We look forward to seeing you!
