The YES Emergency Shelter is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with youth workers, counselors and homeless youth advocates. The shelter is available to youth ages 16 to 20. Youth seeking shelter services are screened to ensure appropriate placement and safety of the residents.
Our emergency shelter is a family-style residence with separate sleeping areas for male and female clients. 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.
If you are a youth in need of a safe place to stay, please call 402.345.5187 or visit our youth resources page.
