Mission & Vision

A community that cares for its youth

We believe that every young person deserves a chance to be happy and successful, no family should suffer through a crisis alone, and the strongest communities support those who are most vulnerable.

Our mission

YES is a lifeline for kids and families coping with challenges such as emotional distress, substance abuse and violence. Through intervention, outreach and prevention, YES builds confidence and personal responsibility, strengthens family relationships, and advocates for a safer community that cares for its youth.

Our vision

The future is bright, and it’s lit by the potential of our youth. We envision a community where our youth can feel safe, taken care of, respected and loved. And where our young people make choices that enhance their well-being and lay the foundation for a solid future.
