YES Shelter

YES recognized for non-profit excellence

Posted on October 22, 2020 in Current News

On October 21, 2020, our team was honoured to be named the recipient of the Peterborough Chamber of Commerce Excellence Award in the Non-Profit Category.

We are beyond thrilled

Our team at the YES Shelter for Youth and Families works very hard to support youth and families, but can’t do this without you – our community of supporters.

Thank YOU, for lifting us up through this tough time, and allowing us to be here for the youth and families that need all of us.

A fun awards ceremony took place online on Oct. 21 to honour businesses in Peterborough

It’s never easy to see young people and families struggling with homelessness, and the pandemic has brought with it some extreme challenges. But in the end, it’s so rewarding to help clients get to a place where they are stable and even thriving.

It is not possible for us to support the most vulnerable in our community without you. We simply could not provide this help without your donations. The Emergency Shelter, the Rise Youth Supported Housing Program, the Carriage House School and the Outreach Program ALL depend on support from the community.

So while we celebrate our amazing staff in the acceptance of this honour, we also celebrate our broader YES family. The people who have chosen to give to YES to enable our staff to support youth and families out of homelessness and into a stable life.
