Friends of Yates, Inc. has been a vital part of the community for many years. My children attended summer youth camps at the Center when they were young. I left them each day feeling confident that they were in good hands. The many services that Friends of Yates has provided for the community makes them more than a "service" agency. Friends of Yates is family...Community family.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through Friends of Yates I personally have learned how to give...not just monitary, but from the heart to other people including: the staff, the volunteers, the residents, the childcare programs and many events that require intellectual knowledge. The benefits of the agency are too many to name...some are seen and some are not seen for many years to come. I always leave feeling like I haven't given or done enough. That feeling keeps me coming back!

I would expand the services and programs so that MORE people could benefit. There is a great need for MORE job coaching, MORE youth programs, MORE training classes...More, More, More!

FOY has served Wyandotte County for many years now, and we hope to further strengthen our presence in the community. Everyone here has a strong passion for social justice and progression. Along with responsibilities at the shelter with our clients who reside here, we also have a responsibility to the community. I am constantly collaborating with KCKPD and the Wyandotte County Court System. I act as an advocate at the shelter, and the victim advocate at the Wyandotte County District and Municipal Courts. Other advocates at FOY are also very involved with collaborating with other members and groups in the community to spread our services across the Kansas City Metropolitan area.

This organization provided a venue for me to use my legal knowlege to help women in need navigate through the court system. The court system can be complicated, especially when faced with issues such as filing for protection orders, and testifying against an abuser in a criminal battery case. The organization has a presence in the court system, and our local law enforcement community. We have all worked together to empower women, and given them the confidence to live and prosper independently.

Expand the organization. But I understand there are limitations provided that we are a non-profit.

I have worked with Friends of Yates for almost 12 years. I have been an advocate for domestic violence victims for more years. I know FOY to be a great advocacy agency for victims of domestice violence, offering services beyond shelter to help victims become survivors and able to go into the community and live normal lives without the abuser. Support for young people has always been a part of their mission and they have initiated many new programs which reach out to many people in our community. The group of people who work with and for FOY are from many ethnic/race groups - very diverse. I continue to work with them because I work with victims each & every day.

The Great!

Seeing them expand to a new building which needed extensive remodeling. This new building allowed them to offer more services to more victims.

I am not in a position to say at this time.
