YES outreach workers hit the streets of greater Omaha, looking for youth in crisis. They carry backpacks filled with basic needs and emergency supplies and patrol areas where homeless and at-risk youth tend to congregate. Outreach workers are trained to identify a young person in need and to provide immediate information and services.
Outreach workers invite homeless and street-dependent youth, ages 16 to 21, to the YES Street Outreach Center. Youth are welcome at this safe place to...
- Eat a warm meal
- Take a hot shower
- Do laundry
- Meet with health care professionals (physical and mental)
- HIV, STD, and pregnancy testing
- Get help obtaining a license or other form of identification
