Review for YES Nature to Neighborhoods, Richmond, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I can not thank the YES organization enough for giving my daughter the opportunity to create wonderful memories of her youth. Pleasant memories of trust and security in our childhood is what we as adults tap into during troubled times. My daughter came home a little less shy and whole lot more secure in who she is. There are many girls and boys such as mine, who just need for someone other than their parents to believe in them. Some of the programs that have nurturing environments are out of our reach due to our finacial situations and leave us feeling a little less worthy as parents. The YES organization found financial assistance for the camping trip fee and was instrumental in giving me the security I needed to be able to entrust my child to someone else for a week. YES helped my daughter and many other children, attend one week of camp during the summer. These children came back with new memories, improved social skills, and most important, tools that will allow them to become better adults. My daughter still glows when she talks about her experience!
