YESS's shelter serves youth aged newborn through 17 and has special units for high-need clients and clients on short respite from their home environments. YESS's Hope Hall provides case management to families on Medicaid and counseling services to any community member in need. YESS was founded in 1973 and has grown in services over the last 47 years.

Member Duties : The AmeriCorps VISTA will manage all donations coming into YESS, including in-kind, pledges, and online donations, to solidify YESS's donation program, thereby ensuring funding for services that break the cycles of homelessness and trauma. The VISTA will develop a long-term donation program that can be sustained in less time than currently needed, ideally using skilled volunteers in the future. The VISTA's main objectives will be to: establish usage protocols for Raiser's Edge donation platform; establish in-kind donation policies and procedures; maintain and improve donor relations; and establish a volunteer program for donation management.
