Welcome to YES!

The Youth Empowered Society (YES) Drop-In Center is an organization that prevents and eliminates youth homelessness through the synergy of youth/peer and ally partnerships. YES is the only dedicated drop-in center in Baltimore and across the state where youth experiencing homelessness can gather, access basic need resources, give and receive peer support, and engage in case management and other programming towards stability and wellness. We provide urgently-needed direct services to youth experiencing homelessness through trauma-informed peer and ally support; developing the leadership and employment readiness of youth; and partnering with youth to advocate for systems change.

Our core values - dignity, wellness, trustworthiness, safety, anti-oppression, and youth and ally partnerships - are central to everything that we do. Through these values and approaches, YES puts youth experiencing homelessness on a pathway to stability by focusing on immediate needs, long-term stability, and civic engagement.  We hope that you join us in this work!
