Why We Do It
We do what we do because every staff member at YES Community Counseling Center has seen the effect a helping hand can have on someone's life. For this reason, we are each dedicated to bringing help and healing to our community.
We do what we do because we know youth determine the future of a community so we are passionate about reaching this next generation.
We do what we do because of the following voices:
"It's now 13 month's that I'm clean of any toxins like cocaine. It has helped me enormously to have heroes in my corner like my counselors at YES. Without which I may have unraveled...With the aid of these dedicated professionals I find I am moving forward relatively quickly. I have goals in place that keep me motivated. I can never go back to where I was, but only desire to move on to a place of giving back."
"YES Community Counseling Center has been there for me during the most difficult times in my life. This center continues to affect my life in the most positive manner."
"I am so honored to know you and all the work you do for the kids in Massapequa and the area. As you know, you counseled my daughter 20 years ago at YES and have made a difference in her life and ours. Bless you and all the work your agency does."
"We found YES through a web of school counselors, and it has literally been a life saver for our son, and an important part of our neighborhood."
"YES is a place for people to go when they have no one to listen to them, where there is a caring counselor waiting to listen and help. It's a place for people to go to feel good about themselves. It is a place for people who are crying out for help and direction in their life to go and receive that help."
"I would like to thank you. The issue of maximizing services for violence prevention in our schools is a top priority. You have helped us to take some of the first baby steps toward a community that coordinates, communicates and instructs staff to better support our students who are at risk."
