Elkhorn Hills UMC Volunteer Opportunity
The Elkhorn Hills UMC Missions Committee has arranged to provide a hot meal to the YES youth once a month. If you would like to be part of the mission opportunity, either by donating food items or money to purchase the food, contact LuAnn Dritley. If you would like to bring a meal outside of EHUMC’s schedule, please contact Youth Emergency Services at 402-345-5187. Thank you for your generosity!
Omaha World Herald Article
Elkhorn Hills has provided support to YES for the last several years. The OWH has a front-page article about the YES organization; click here to read the Omaha World Herald article.
The mission of YES is to serve homeless and at-risk youth by providing critically-needed resources which empower them to become self-sufficient. Basically, they help youth in crisis get back to their feet in whatever ways they can. After meeting immediate needs for food, shelter, clothing and safety, YES creates a support system to help them flourish. YES envisions a community which understands and embraces its youth, creating an environment where youth homelessness no longer exists.
