Youth Emergency Services, Inc.
Our mission is to serve homeless and at-risk youth by providing critically-needed resources which empower them to become self-sufficient.
YES was founded in 1974 by a group of community volunteers in an effort to provide a safe place for homeless youth they saw on the street corners of downtown Omaha.
In the past 35 years, YES has helped more than 5,800 youth escape a crisis situation. YES assisted more than 800 homeless and at-risk youth in 2010-11 alone. YES is the only organization in Omaha that focuses directly on helping runaway and homeless youth turn their lives around in a positive direction.
