YES has provided short-term emergency shelter for youth in crisis since 1974. The shelter is available to youth ages 16 to 18. Youth seeking shelter services are screened to ensure appropriate placement and safety of the residents.
Our emergency shelter is a family-style residence with divided sleeping areas for male and female guests. Youth share meals, television and computer privileges, and recreation and laundry facilities in a community area. A trained staff of counselors, advocates and youth workers spends individual, focused time with residents to help them work through the problems they face.
