YES would never be able to offer the breadth of support for children and youth struggling with mental health and substance use challenges if it weren’t for the generous participation of our Invest in Youth Breakfast sponsors.

Sponsors of the Breakfast have helped YES serve over 7,500 children, youth, and families in East King County last year. Our sponsors pay the way for clients to access critical programs and services, regardless of their ability to pay for services, which benefits more than 60% of clients who report low income.

When the Invest in Youth Breakfast was canceled and we shifted to a virtual event because of COVID-19, our generous sponsors stood with us and continued to support our efforts. We are grateful for their commitment and support!

Perkins Coie has supported the Breakfast for the past few years. Giving back to their community has been a core value of the company for over a hundred years.

“Helping children has been a focus of Perkins Coie pro bono and public service efforts. We are proud of our partnerships with nonprofit community organizations and especially pleased to be able to support Youth Eastside Services in its important work on behalf of children and youth.”

Local, small commercial contractor business Firstline Systems support YES because they believe every youth deserves equal opportunity as the leaders of our future.

“Working with Youth Eastside Services has allowed us to come together to bridge the social, economic, and political gaps in our community.”

Overlake Medical Center & Clinics, a long-standing sponsor of the Breakfast is inspired by local, like-minded organizations that enhance the health and well-being of our community.

“By partnering with YES, Overlake is supporting programs that directly impact the needs of our Eastside community. We are inspired by YES’ dedication to not only helping its clients now but also empowering them with critical skills to help them manage emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal challenges throughout their lives.”

Similarly, “EvergreenHealth is honored to partner with YES, whose commitment to youth mental health supports our mission to serve the health and well-being of youth in our community.”

Our sponsors help ensure that all young people in our community who struggle with depression, anxiety, addictions, self-harm, suicide ideation, and more, have access to the critical services they need to recover, heal, and thrive. The current situation has increased isolation, anxiety, and stress, and we know it’s more important now than ever to receive mental health and substance use services.

With gratitude to our Breakfast sponsors, thank you for your continued support of children, youth, and families, we look forward to continuing to work together!

Thank you to our generous 2020 sponsors!
