Youth Emergency Services Foundation was created in 2001 to serve as the fundraising arm of the Y.E.S. House primarily for the purpose of building a unified campus (ie: capital campaign). From 2001 into 2014, the Foundation raised over 13 million dollars in private donations and government matching funds to build the four building campus. The Crisis Shelter was completed in February 2008, followed by the Boys Residential Treatment Center in March of 2008. The Tammy Hladky Center of H.O.P.E. which houses the school, administrative offices and counseling center, was completed in August of 2011. The final building to complete the vision of a unified campus, the Girls Residential Treatment Center, opened in June of 2015.
The capital campaign is complete, but work continues to serve children and their families at times of crisis. In 2014 the Y.E.S. House served 995 children and their families. And in the current fiscal year, we are on track to help over 1,000 children and their families. As the need for our help increases, so does the need for resources to serve these youth in crisis and to help them seek a successful future. The Y.E.S. Foundation serves as the donor’s hands, reaching out to our kids and their families by providing resources for the Y.E.S. House that would not be available otherwise.
The ultimate goal of the YES House Foundation is to provide long term financial support to the Y.E.S. House programs. Your gifts to the Y.E.S. Foundation will enable the YES House to continue to provide high quality prevention and treatment service to youth and their families for years to come.
