YSS and GreenState Announce Partnership at Sixth Avenue Flats

YSS is partnering with GreenState Credit Union to bring much-needed services to the River Bend neighborhood in Des Moines.

As part of the partnership, GreenState is sponsoring the build-out of YSS’s space in Sixth Avenue Flats, a new affordable housing project that recently opened in Des Moines. A portion of the apartments will be reserved for YSS youth who have aged out of the foster care system and are experiencing homelessness.

YSS will utilize its on-site office space to offer support for the Sixth Avenue Flats residents, as well as outpatient counseling services to families and individuals in the surrounding community. In addition, GreenState will provide financial services.

Together, these essential services will fill a gap in the neighborhood.

“We’re grateful to GreenState for making our space a reality, “ said Andrew Allen, President & CEO of YSS. “We are excited to bring resources to this community and work together to empower and support families in the area.”

“GreenState is honored to partner with YSS to support their efforts to close gaps throughout Central Iowa. The work they’re doing is transformational and we look forward to assisting their clients in building a path to financial stability,” said Lindsay Cannaday, Vice President/Business Development Director for GreenState Credit Union.

Sixth Avenue Flats apartments officially opened in summer 2023. The YSS office space is under development with plans to open later this year.

GreenState Credit Union is Iowa’s largest credit union and one of the top financial institutions in the United States for returning profits to members in the form of better rates and lower fees. GreenState serves over 400,000 members with 33 office locations in Iowa and Illinois. Membership is open to anyone living or working in Iowa as well as select counties in Illinois, Wisconsin, Nebraska, and South Dakota.
