Welcome to Yes
Founded in February 2000, Youth Enterprise Services, Inc. (YES) is a Maryland 501 (c )(3) corporation that provides services for children and young adults who are aging out of the juvenile welfare system and who have been adjudicated by the courts. Our clientele include individuals who are neglected, abused, emotionally fragile, homeless and in need of individualized services.
The mission of YES has always been to provide services that address the special needs of at-risk young people with serious behavioral disorders and their families.
By offering a continuum of personalized services, the lives of the youth and their families will be enhanced resulting in a more stable, structured, and caring family environment. Our primary mission is to assist our at-risk population in becoming responsible, independent, contributing members of their community.
Through our Transitional Housing and Shelter Care Program we are able to address the short-term residential and programmatic needs of male youth within the state of Maryland. Our Group Home Residential Services for Youth Aging out of Foster Care prepares them to successfully exit the child welfare system into a life of productive independence.
YES is supported through federal and state funding in addition to contributions from the philanthropic community. As an independent, non-profit agency, we have been ably guided by our capable and diverse Board of Directors and work tirelessly with our community partners in helping to transform the lives of this very fragile yet needful population.
