Youth Emergency Services Inc.

Together We Can

WELCOME to the Y.E.S. House. It is my pleasure to introduce our programs, and explain what the Y.E.S. House can offer to families who are facing challenges in raising children. I have been with the Y.E.S. House for more than a decade, and have witnessed many success stories that would touch anyone’s heart. I have learned when the family works hard, has a willingness to change, and believes that they can overcome the issues; they will succeed.

When children and their families are in the care of the Y.E.S. House, it is a time to make life changes, to learn new skills, and to set a new roadmap. Our dedicated staff help children realize their potential and possibilities; and then assist in making dreams a reality. Our children’s dreams are the same as yours and mine, “the dream of safety, love, support, and happiness”. I encourage you to read the information on this website. Maybe you have children that need our programs, maybe you have a friend who is struggling, or maybe you are a person who wants to get involved in our programs by becoming a mentor or foster parent.

It's #MeetMeMonday, a day where we introduce you to the amazing people who are changing lives and making a difference at the YES House. Today we'd like you to meet Leona McGraw.

Leona has worked at YES House for 32 years as a Treatment Coordinator in the Boys Residential Treatment Center. Leona’s calm demeanor is comforting to all who meet her. While she is always calm, she is a bit of an adrenaline junkie and used to race Stock Cars!

We asked Leona what her favorite thing about the YES House and what she would like people to know about the YES House.

"The kids that we work with are my favorite part of the YES House. I would like everyone to know the YES House is not a place for “bad kids.” It’s a safe place for kids who have made bad choices and need some guidance.”

Thank you, Leona, for making a difference!
