YES Community Counseling Center

Making a difference today for a better tomorrow

     We know you have many choices when it comes to your charitable giving, but we hope you will keep us in your hearts this holiday season. This year, especially, has been very challenging as the pandemic has seriously impacted on all our fundraising efforts. Your contribution allows us to reach the children and families that need us most. Children who have been physically abused or witness to domestic violence, children and adults who have become addicted to drugs or whose parents are drug or alcohol involved. Sadly, while the list of issues and struggles that face our friends and neighbors grows with each passing year, our resources and ability to help remain a constant challenge. Your financial support helps us to help others…it is that simple to make a real difference in someone’s life!

If you are shopping online for the holidays this year
(but don’t forget how important it is to shop local),
please take a moment to sign up for Amazon Smile.
Each time you buy, you will be supporting YES!
If prompted to designate a charity, select Youth Environmental
Services Inc (our full legal name) in Massapequa.

In spite of our determination and motivation, we have not been able to embark on any fundraising activities which we know will have a profound impact on our ability to continue the scope of all our services.  In an effort to use all our resources, we have developed a campaign which we will be rolling out through social media.  Not much fluff … just an open, honest and direct appeal for help.  We are calling the campaign….STEP IT UP FOR YES.

We are a community-based, non-profit organization that has been serving the residents of southeastern Nassau County since 1977. Though historically rooted in youth programs, we changed our name from Youth Environmental Services to better reflect the scope of services we provide, including school-based social work, counseling, drug/alcohol treatment, and a wide variety of other services.

As a result, we tend to those who are struggling with issues including but not limited to domestic violence, chemical dependence, family conflict, sexual abuse, marital/peer difficulties, bereavement, and health concerns.

We are making a difference today for a better tomorrow.

Our mission is to increase awareness about personal and community issues, prevent and treat substance abuse, and to promote healthy families and a safe community.
