Youth Emergency Services Raises More than $75K from Successful Golf Outing
More than 130 golfers from throughout the country gathered at the Player’s Club at Deer Creek Golf Course August 31 to raise more than $75,000 for the Youth Emergency Services’ (YES) (yesomaha.org) mission to help youth who are experiencing homelessness and near-homelessness. Due to the ongoing pandemic, this year’s outing was held almost exclusively outside, including team check-in, meal distribution, the purchase of mulligans and raffle tickets and, of course, a gorgeous afternoon of golfing.
Youth Emergency Services is the only nonprofit in Omaha with the sole mission to help youth experiencing homelessness and near-homelessness in our community. Last year, YES provided support and services to more than 3,000 youth in the Omaha metro area. Many of these youth have been physically, emotionally, or sexually abused, making it unsafe for them to return home. YES offers a full continuum of care to ensure all youth receive the support they need, no matter their situation, via a Street Outreach Center, Emergency Shelter, Transitional Living Program, Maternity Group Home, and Rapid Rehousing.
The 2021 YES Golf Outing is scheduled for May 3, 2021, once again at the Player’s Club at Deer Creek. Learn more about Youth Emergency Services at yesomaha.org, or contact Michael Watkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
