Each night, hundreds of youth in the Omaha metro are homeless. Many of these youth have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused, making it unsafe for them to return home.
Many others are facing health, mental health and substance abuse issues beyond their control. Without proper support and guidance, these vulnerable adolescents cannot succeed independently, and will likely fall into the cycle of homelessness as adults.
Youth Emergency Services (YES) exists to help these youth turn their lives around. Homeless and at-risk youth often lack positive adult interaction and are hesitant to ask for help because of this. We work to become a positive influence in each of our youths' lives and help guide them toward the road to success and self-sufficiency.
