If we weren’t able to connect with you last year, watch for us to reach out to you this upcoming year. We know how valuable our relationships are, and we want to make every effort to reconnect with you to continue making our community stronger.

Kellie Harry President Mutual of Omaha David Ortman Vice President First National Bank of Omaha

We spent 2021 finding our way out of the pandemic that challenged us all in 2020 and reconnected with one another. For YES, that meant reconnecting with our donors, community partners, corporate supporters, event participants and attendees, and above all else, our youth and families.

Thankful Mom Praises YES

Elizabeth and Aisha

hen her son, Gabe, encountered a bit of trouble earlier this year that W took him away from the family home, Melina Greger didn’t have many options to keep him safe and off the streets. While she admits to not being familiar with Youth Emergency Services at the time, she quickly learned about YES’ Emergency Shelter and was able to get him safely housed. YES turned out to be the Godsend that she and her family needed – and needless to say, she’s incredibly grateful. “I’m convinced that without YES, he would have ended up on the streets or somewhere else unsafe,” said Greger, a loan officer with Veridian Credit Union who emigrated from Puerto Rico to the United States years ago. Melina thought so highly of YES and the services Gabe received that she nominated the organization last fall to be among the five nonprofits chosen for Veridian’s Spark the Spirit Giving Campaign in November. YES finished with the second-most votes to win $2,500 to go toward helping YES reach and surpass its 2021 Giving Tuesday goal of $25,000.

From South Sudan to YES efore arriving in the United States several years ago -- first in Chicago and B then moving to Omaha -- after living in a Kenyan refugee camp, Elizabeth imagined America as a "paradise." Suffice it to say, despite the cold winters and her ongoing challenge of having English as her second language, her life in the states has been all that she imagined and more. Everything she does today -- going to school to become a nurse, working as a CNA and taking care of her one-year-old daughter, Aisha, with the assistance and guidance of YES' Maternity Group Home (MGH) staff -- is so she can give Aisha a life free from the struggles and challenges she's had. "I don't know where I'd be right now if it wasn't for YES," said Elizabeth, who came to YES at the suggestion of a former Benson High School ESL teacher. "The staff helped me during my pregnancy, gave me a place to live and have helped me take care of Aisha. “Through some of the toughest times in my life, YES has been there for me."

Pickleman’s Raises Thousands for YES or the second year, Pickleman’s stepped up in November — which Fhappens to be National Homeless Youth Awareness Month — to raise money and awareness for YES! During a month-long promotion, Pickleman’s asked patrons to donate $1 with each transaction to help homeless youth in our community. In return, customers received a coupon to use toward a future purchase. At the conclusion of the promotion, Alex Harrington, Pickleman’s Nebraska franchises owner (pictured below, middle), donated more than $3,700 to YES. Pickleman’s also donated $100 worth of gift cards as silent auction items for YES’ Dance for a Chance fundraiser in October. “As a business owner and member of the community, it is absolutely critical to be a community partner with vital organizations such as Youth Emergency Services,” he said. “I believe all people can be leaders in their own community, whether it is their family, friend group, at school or at their job. It starts here at YES.”

Giving Campaign. Those five nonprofits then spend two weeks at the beginning of November using social media, reaching out to supporters, etc., to get people to vote for them. The organization that receives the most votes gets $5,000 to use toward its Giving Tuesday funds. YES received the second-most votes and received $2,500 from Veridian to use toward helping homeless youth in the Omaha community. Melina (pictured above, second from left) nominated YES for the honor because of the great assistance she received in 2021 to help her son, Gabe. He found refuge in YES Emergency Shelter while he earned employment and got on his feet. Melina was so grateful for the help they received that she has pledged her help toward YES in 2022 and beyond.


Union Pacific Tees Up for YES Presenting Sponsor of YES Golf Outing nion Pacific returned once again as the presenting U sponsor for YES’ annual Golf Outing in August. Despite ongoing concerns about COVID, we had a great turnout of golfers and sponsors. The event raised more than $75,000 to help our youth. We couldn’t do this event each year without the support and participation of Union Pacific because — with the help of YES board member Casey Dyer — the organization is involved more than by name. Not only are they the presenting sponsor, but they provide most of the teams and sponsors from their many vendors and business partners who come to Omaha from all over the country. Everyone arrives in town to play 18 holes at The Players Club at Deer Creek, buys mulligans and raffle tickets and enjoys a full day of golfing and talking shop. It’s a fantastic fundraiser for YES.

Lindsay Hits the Floor for YES Presenting Sponsor of Dance for a Chance fter sponsoring YES’ Dance for a Chance at the Champion level for Aseveral years, Lindsay Corporation stepped into the Presenting Sponsor role in 2021 — helping make the annual fundraiser a tremendous success. Lindsay encouraged a staff member to participate as a dancer and supported him through a variety of internal fundraisers. Many staff members — including YES board member Kelly Staup — attended the event, which welcomed more than 400 people a year after the event was canceled due to ongoing concerns about the pandemic. The 2021 Dance for a Chance had a 2020s theme, where most people arrived in 1920s attire, the music and drink selections were from that era and, of course, the dancing had a 1920s influence. In all, the event raised more than $109,000 to help homeless youth in our community.

First Presbyterian ‘Hands-Up’ for YES

Tip Top Thrift Shop Donates Money, Items to Help YES Youth

Hand-Up for Housing Walk-A-Thon Raises Thousands irst Presbyterian Church of Omaha has Fbeen a long-time supporter of Youth Emergency Services, regularly providing meals to feed youth who visit our Street Outreach Center. The congregation took that support a big step forward last year when they chose YES along with two other local organizations as part of its Matthew 25 Hand Up Mission. The funds addressed housing insecurities experienced by neighbors in the Omaha Community. Matthew 25:31-46 calls all believers to actively engage in the world around us, so our faith comes alive and we wake up to new possibilities. Churches work toward one or more of three goals: building congregational vitality, dismantling structural racism and eradicating systemic poverty. Through it’s Hand Up for Housing Walk in October, First Presbyterian donated $20,000 to YES to help us provide safe, affordable housing for our youth.

Tip Top Thrift Shop is a volunteer-run thrift store located in the heart of the Benson neighborhood. All profits from the sale of donated clothing and household items go to support YES’ mission of ending youth homelessness in our community. 5900 Maple Street During the 2020-21 fiscal year, sales from Tip Top Omaha, NE 68104 contributed more than $29,000 to help YES. Tip Thursday-Saturday Top also allows YES youth to shop free of charge 10 a.m.— 4 p.m. for clothes, household items, etc. It’s been this 402-551-1302 way for many years. Please consider donating clothing and household items to and/or volunteering at Tip Top Thrift Shop and become an advocate for homeless youth in our community. All donations can be dropped off at Tip Top during regular business hours.

Please call or stop in to learn about volunteer opportunities. 8
