EAST ORANGE, NJ - Isaiah House's Youths Empowered to Succeed (YES) project was funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services—BASIC Centers grant, to help reduce the number of homeless youths surviving on the streets in Essex County, and to help increase the number of runaway and homeless youths receiving much-needed services to help them reunite with their families; and/or help them stabilize their personal situation by providing shelter, primary health, and mental health care; access to education, job training and job placement, for those who cannot be reunited with their families.

The YES project is partnered with Bessie Mae Women and Family Health Clinic (East Orange—Primary/Mental Healthcare), Essex County RAIN Foundation (East Orange—Shelter for LGBTQ youths), and EYES INC. (External Evaluations); and it is only one of two projects funded in the State of New Jersey in 2017 to provide supportive services to runaway and homeless youths. The successful proposal was developed and written by the professional funding team of EYES INC (eyesinc.org).

YES will operate a drop-in center for youths, providing a centralized access to a strong supportive network of comprehensive wrap-around services to encourage and enhance stability for no less than 240 youths annually, to include emergency housing assistance, family reunification, transitional housing, case management, behavioral healthcare (individual/group/families), domestic violence, financial literacy, healthcare, health and wellness activities; career placement, supportive employment (Job Retention), transportation, legal services, recreational activities, and more.
