Reflex proud to sponsor Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS)
- January 30, 2016
Community involvement and giving back to those in need are key values for Reflex Enterprise Solutions Group, which is why we provide sponsorship for a number of local and national initiatives and charities. One group that we’re very proud to sponsor is Edmonton’s Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS), an organization working to support youth in need in our city.
Since 1981, YESS has been providing shelter, safety, and hope to youth facing difficult realities throughout Edmonton. A non-profit organization headquartered on Edmonton’s Whyte Avenue with branches throughout the city, YESS is dedicated to shaping the future of Edmonton by supporting youth in need. In addition to providing emergency shelter, the organization also offers ongoing support programs and individual guidance through a non-judgemental, relationship-based approach to help youth heal from traumatic experiences.
The organizations programs and services range from the “Nexus” Centre, a rapid referral centre to help youth experiencing homelessness get into a stable home as quickly as possible, to the “Armoury Resource Centre” (ARC), a daytime hub where youth can access a variety of services and participate in different workshops and activities. YESS also hosts or attends a number of charity events throughout the year, including clothing drives, golf tournaments, fashion shows, and more. Learn more about upcoming YESS events here.
This past holiday season, we donated to YESS on behalf of each of our clients, sending them all a Christmas card to let them know of the donation and thanking them for being a part of our initiative to give back. Our donation went towards giving youth at YESS a warm place to sleep, healthy meals, a sanctuary out of the cold, and hope for the future.
YESS relies on fundraising, sponsorships, and volunteer hours so that they can continue providing support for Edmonton’s youth. More information on getting involved with YESS can be found here.
