Youth Emergency Services assists youth experiencing homelessness and near homelessness by providing
critically-needed resources which support them in
their desire to be self-sufficient.
After many years at our 26th and Farnam home, Youth Emergency Services is EXCITED to announce our administration offices

Due to increased rent and need for more efficient space, our new offices are on the third floor above Site-1 Brewing in the Quarters Neighborhood at 25th and Farnam streets. The secured entrance is to the west near Hank & Ax Salon.

The move is effective TODAY, APRIL 1!

Please watch YES Facebook and Twitter in the coming weeks for more details about a May Open House -- and we'd LOVE to have you JOIN US!

Reconnecting with our Communities YES 2021 Impact Report

If the last two years have taught us anything, it’s that as people, communities and particularly, nonprofit organizations, we’re all Better Together.

We spent 2021 finding our way out of the pandemic that challenged us all in 2020 and reconnected with one another.

For YES, that meant reconnecting with our donors, community partners, corporate supporters, event participants and attendees, and above all else, our youth and families.

If we weren’t able to connect with you last year, watch for us to reach out to you this upcoming year.

We know how valuable our relationships are, and we want to make every effort to reconnect with you to continue making our community stronger!

We outlined all of this AND MORE in our 2021 YES Impact Report!

Let us know what you think!
We'd love to HEAR from you.

Your Gift Leaves a Lasting Legacy

You've no doubt heard the expression "You Can't Take it With You."

But what you can do is leave what you have to an organization like YES that continues to positively impact our community after 47 years.

Anyone who supports YES with a donation -- longtime or recent, one-time or recurring, big or not-so-big donors -- can become a Legacy Giver to ensure the longevity and impact of our organization.

Here's How:

Gifts of stock and bequests are excellent means of contributing to YES. Your tax adviser or legal expert can offer further insight into the tax benefits of these gifts.

Appreciated Stock: You may be eligible for an additional tax deduction for giving stock that is worth more now than when you paid for it.

Proceeds of Depreciated Stock: If you own depreciated stock, you may benefit more by selling the stock and donating the proceeds to us. Selling depreciated stock may entitle you to an additional tax deduction.

Estate Planning: Include Youth Emergency Services in your estate plans. Please contact us for estate planning materials.
