YOS is a bastion of hope and simply "what is right in the world." The diversity and depth of their programming and outreach allows for them to reach so many needed youth and have real impacts in their lives. I have worked directly with the leadership at YOS and couldn't be more impressed with the efficiency of the organization. As a business owner I am often confronted by this daunting three letter acronym ROI; YOS amazes me with how much they are able to do with the resources they have. I'm proud to be associated in the slightest and couldn't endorse a better organization!

YOS is a valuable and effective service for the underserved Chicago youth community. As a donor, I attended an event held by the young professional board, which did an excellent job explaining the role of YOS and the services it provides. I think the most impressive work is in conjunction with the CeaseFire organization, working to provide a safe and stable environment for young people growing up in dangerous and unstable communities.

Youth Outreach Services offers what everyone needs most and that is a sense of belonging. This is given to the children they help by finding them good homes with people who want to see them succeed. They also give the children and families all the support they need to ensure that any road bumps that life throws at a foster child or foster family can be navigated successfully. I was introduced to this organization by a client of mine who is a key leader in the organization. I was invited to a fundraiser where I met the people whose lives were impacted in a positive way by the services YOS gave to them while they were younger and allowed them to move beyond the hand life dealt them and go to college and beyond.

The Great!

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

Presentations given by lead YOS leaders and testimonials from the people who have benefited from YOS that I have met at the various fundraisers.

Continue to do what they do and be a little more self promoting so everyone can see the good they are doing.

I have a close relative working for YOS for 30 years, since the beginning. I have seen the growth in their services provided to a community desperately in need. The profound impact they have made on the children and teens at risk in Chicago is what keeps me donating. I have moved away from Chicago and I still consistently contribute to YOS. I believe in their mission and I truly believe they are making a difference.
Rock on!

I recently joined the Auxiliary Board of YOS and have had a chance to learn more about the many ways YOS impacts the lives of underserved youth and families in Chicago. YOS is dedicated to helping at-risk kids realize their full potential, improve their own lives, their communities and the city as a whole.

YOS is one of the best organizations out there and uniquely fills its role. It currently is the only organization in IL with a domestic violence intervention program that has made great strides in serving children who are in bad home situations and are at risk. They also have an excellent program at the ERC which provides amazing social services for underserved children.

YOS is an organization with heart. The staff is fully committed to the job of helping "at-risk" youth move from problematic behavior to positive citizenship. In the current climate of budget cutting this organization continues to perform with shrinking resources.

The Great!

I have seen the numbers and heard the stories regarding the positive results achieved by this organization.

Ensure that they receive the funding they deserve.
