Those Who Help
We simply couldn’t do our work without the support of our community… THANK YOU!
Tip Top Thrift Shop
As one of YES’ biggest supporters, Tip Top Thrift Shop is comprised of over 150 community volunteers who work tirelessly to help bring an end to youth homelessness. This little shop, located in Benson, donates $2,000 each month from proceeds from their store!
Last fall, YES became a host location for Omaha’s first Campus Kitchen. In partnership with UNO, YES receives food that would have otherwise gone to waste. Twice a week, UNO students deliver non-perishable food items and meals to YES’ Street Outreach Center. To date, Campus Kitchen has donated over 2,000 lbs of food to YES.
Central Michigan University
Just like the youth served by YES, our supporters span the country! Central Michigan University students have donated over 200 hours of volunteer service to Youth Emergency Services since December of 2016!
Fourteen Starbucks locations in the community have joined on to become SAFE PLACESites since January 1017. These passionate baristas have also offered to volunteer their time and talents with YES! Thank you for your support!
This year, one of YES’ Street Outreach interns, Tim Arkfield, hosted an open mic night at Drips Coffee, Council Bluffs with proceeds going to help the homeless youth in our community. A special thanks to all of those who shared their talents and who gathered to support our mission!
