Serving youth throughout the mid columbia region…
Youth Empowerment Shelter (YES)
provides youth in the Columbia River Gorge
a place of physical and emotional safety while
assisting them to build positive relationships
and develop their individual potentials.
Helping Those In Need
For many youth, the challenges of life in the 21st century are overwhelming. YES helps youth in the mid-Columbia Gorge region find the hope, confidence, and skills they need to achieve stability and success in their lives. We run a year-round youth shelter and also provide community-based day services to young adults and families experiencing a crisis, hardship, or barrier.
