Youth Entry Services YES!
YES! is a mobile-based outreach program designed to reduce the travel burden and barriers facing youth (12-17) and young adults (18-24) that need access to services. Wherever you are, whenever you need help, the YES! team is waiting for your call. YES! travels throughout Clallam County and can provide assistance with many services such as helping clients obtain phones, phone minutes, food, transportation, utilities, move-in assistance, rent assistance, referrals to mental health services, and referrals to education and employment services. The next phase of this project is to create YYA housing solutions in Clallam County - a project for which Serenity House is actively seeking funding.
You are not alone.
Did you know that there are over 500 homeless youth and young adults living in Clallam County today?
You are not the only one. You have nothing to be ashamed of. Whatever you are going through, no matter how bad it seems, Serenity House wants to help. Our staff will be there for you every step of the way. Please call our intake line at (360)565-5041 to set up an appointment.
“I’m just couch surfing.”
For youth and young adults, couch surfing is homelessness.
This is one of the things that makes our job so difficult - with so many youth couch surfing it’s hard to tell who does and doesn’t need our services. If you are under the age of 24 and living with friends or acquaintances, please reach out to us. Our specialists will be more than happy to meet with you.
“I want to help.”
Join the Serenity House Youth Advisory Board!
Adults should not have the only say when it comes to youth-centered resolutions. We need the YYA population of Clallam County to come together and tell us how to solve a youth-oriented problem. If you are under the age of 24 and you have lived experience with homelessness, we need your voice. Please contact the YES! program to learn about joining.
Too old to join the advisory board? Reach out to us anyway. Donations of food, clothing, your time, and old technology in good condition can all be put toward supporting our county’s youth.
