Youth Empowerment Shelter in The Dalles - Helping Those In Need

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.
