Latest COVID 19 Updates/Needs

A top priority at YSS is the health, safety, and well-being of our employees, volunteers and those we’re serving.  We also know this is a time of uncertainty for many youth and families we serve.

As such, we’ve established an Emergency Response Team/COVID-19 Taskforce.  The interagency taskforce is actively monitoring updates from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Iowa Department of Public Health, and local government agencies to manage this rapidly evolving situation.  YSS has implemented changes related to employee expectations, visitor guidelines, and working to adapt programs to best meet the needs of those we serve.

This situation is changing and we will remain vigilant when it comes to implementing procedures to ensure the health and safety of our employees, clients and volunteers, while also working hard to deliver on our mission to create hope and opportunity by putting kids first.

At this time we are not allowing visitors to our administrative buildings, however virtual volunteer opportunities are available.  If you’d like to assist YSS, please consider a donation to our COVID 19 Fund help us maintain our services during this challenging time.
