YAIPaks has been essential to reducing trauma of children entering foster care. When children enter custody they often have the clothes on their backs and nothing else. The local office can keep minimum clothing due to storage space and concerns of bed bugs or other pest that could invade the office. YAIPAKS responds immediately and promptly to request of the Department for clothing, food, furniture, and baby items for new parents. If it were not for YAIPAKS foster children would experience a more traumatic process of leaving everything; and moving forward with nothing. Could not say enough about how much YAIPAKS means to foster children and Department of Childrens Services.

YAIPAK is one of the greats. I have watched this charity grow from one woman trying her best to be Jesus to her local homeless population into the large, organized, effective ministry it is today.

I got to help for the first time when my best friend wanted to volunteer for her birthday. We had an absolute blast. We got to hear the stories of how it began and where it has gone and where the organization hopes to go. I cherished my night there and hope to find time to volunteer more. Love this organization and love what it is doing for Clarksville!

My boys love to volunteer at the warehouse with sorting items and loading trucks! It's a great place for families to serve together. I have been blessed to join the team a few times as they hit the streets to take care of the homeless. These people who often feel forgotten are so appreciative of Sherry and her team! They not only serve the homeless, they also meet the needs of foster children, students in need in our schools, they do disaster relief as well. They help our homeless Veterans on the streets, and as they get into housing YAIPaks provides them with all of their basic home supplies for the kitchen and bathroom, and bed linens as well. (Attaching a few of my photos.)

YAIPacks is unconditional love, non judgmental, God faithful, hard working, whose goal is to care for the less fortunate. They have made tremendous impact on many lives, and continue to reach those who have given up, with their love and hope and supply them with what they need.

I took the tour of YaiPaks warehouse last year & was in awe of the wonderful donations; volunteers; the facility; teamwork, etc.
I then spent a day with Sherry and her team of Angel's going in to wooded campsites of homeless.
This day changed my life! These folks were so grateful; loving and praising God for their lives. Some had no shoes; no sleeping materials or food.
My family now buys and donates to the vets & homeless in our area plus also to YaiPaks.
I've never been so full of joy from helping people; showing kindness and being part of "The Hope".
YaiPaks is absolutely #1.

An absolute wonderful organization that I am humbled to support personally and through Mass Pursuit TV. They are an unimaginable enabler throughout Tennessee as well as throughout the US and the work they influence internationally. They work tirelessly to provide anything they can to those less fortunate. Great special group of ladies.

Very friendly people that follow a great cause and goal. We all tend to forget that there are people right here that are hurting and needing support, I love that I know someone will stay warm at night, has a good pair of shoes and knows that there are people that are here, that care.

Yaipaks is an amazing nonprofit ministry! I’ve seen so many lives changed through the unconditional love that is shown to everyone that either volunteers at the warehouse or that is provided for. My own life has been changed by this organization because of the consistency and the unconditional love that Sherry and her team shows.

Love what they stand for and who they serve. This group helps us tremendously in our job of providing homeless Veterans who are getting housed with household goods, furniture, clothes, and items for family members. They also help us at put Thanksgiving meals on these Veterans tables. We are not able to thank this group enough for all they do, not only for our program and Veterans but the communities as a whole.

For me, YAIPAKS is the heart of Jesus, I've learned so much about compassion from the founder of YAIPAKS . I've learned to not be afraid and the difference between actual homeless and panhandlers. The YAIPAKS team actually goes to the streets and learns people's names and their stories, they connect, they make a difference, they change lives but these people on the streets will change your life too. Pictured is a favorite of mine, he is no longer with us but he forever left an imprint on my husband and me.

This wonderful outreach program has been such a blessing to so many. We moved here over a year ago and have witnessed the God given grace that pours from the commitment and love of each owner and volunteer alike. They bring awareness to those who need it and go above and beyond to insure that our community knows Gods plan and helps fulfill it the best way possible. I love what you all stand for and proudly donate to this blessing.

In July 2018 our entire house flooded due to a broken pipe, we lived in a hotel until the insurance kicked us out and we were forced to go home without any belongings. YAIPaks contacted me and gave us pillows and bedding until our stuff could be returned. She also gifted some stuffed animals to our daughters during this transition. We have since volunteered with them and the girls remember that this place was the place that loved us and helped us and help so many others.

Our family has been struggling to stay afloat since my 19 year old son was killed in 2017. Not just financially, but with everything. YAIPaks donated a car to our family and things have been turning around since then. My son who just graduated his first year of college was able to get his drivers license. Receiving this gift has helped us tremendously and the effects are continuing. YAIPaks not only helped our family but a family friend who became family was needing to get out of a dangerous situation and YAIPaks enabled her to get her own place and have it furnished with the necessities of life. Food, clothes shoes a crib and clothes for her son, dishes, pretty much everything you'd need at a new place when you start over from nothing. YAIPaks isn't just a helps organization, it's a conduit of love and resources sent from our heavenly father, everywhere they go lives are healed and blessed because of them!

I help serve with Yaipak and enjoy helping them help the community. they are passionate about what they do and it shows. They care about each person and treat them as a person that comes through the door needing help. You can feel the love they have for people and spreading Jesus wherever they are.

I have volunteered twice at YAIPaks. On the surface, what you see is a well-organized organization. They have the process of serving down to a fine art. BUT, it's when you listen to Sherry and the team talk about what they do and why that you see the heart of YAIPaks.

The love they show to those in need is unmatched. They take great care to be sure that every life they touch doesn't just see a person handing them clothing, tents, food, etc.; but, that person sees God.

We are called to be the hands and feet of God - serving others without condemnation. And, that is what YAIPaks does and inpires others to do.

I look forward to serving again soon.

Amazing ministry with people dedicated to helping those without homes and enduring harsh conditions on the street. Many women and children are helped as well as children placed in foster care. There are a lot of organizations that do good work but this one is by far one of the most dedicated and worthwhile ones around.
