Due to COVID-19, the annual YES Invest in Youth Breakfast had to be canceled. Instead, throughout the week of March 18-25, YES shared virtual stories of hope, healing, and recovery through videos, emails, and social media. Donations from the breakfast fund low/no-cost behavioral health care for children, youth, and families, as well as education and prevention programs throughout our community.

Thanks to over 550 donors, the week-long, virtual Invest in Youth Breakfast raised a record-breaking $945,915!

During this crisis, these generous donors came through and became a part of the solution to provide over 7,500 children, youth, and families with immediate, evidence-based, and compassionate care through our new web-based TeleHealth technology. A special thanks to the many people who helped make YES’ first-ever virtual breakfast possible, including Breakfast Co-chairs Sandy Torrey and Carmen Halstrom, Breakfast Committee members, Champion’s Matching Pool donors, sponsors, YES Board of Trustees, Table Captains and many more. Together we are virtually unstoppable!
