What We Do

YES serves youth ages 16-21 experiencing homelessness and near homelessness by providing critically-needed resources which empower them to become self-sufficient and live independently.

Basically, we help youth in crisis get back on their feet however we can and wherever they are.

Interesting Info

YES served over 3,800 youth in the Omaha community during 2017/2018.
Within 48 hours on the street, 90% of homeless youth are approached by a trafficker.
We envision a community which understands and embraces its youth, creating an environment where youth homelessness no longer exists.
