YES Waiver

The Youth Empowerment Services Waiver also known as the YES Waiver provides home and community-based services to individuals’ ages 3-18 who have a serious emotional disturbance putting them at risk of being placed outside of the home. Services include non-traditional therapies, paraprofessional services, family supports, community living skills and others as well as traditional therapeutic services such as art therapy, music therapy, and animal assisted therapy. YES Waiver work is channeled through a team approach that includes community providers, families, and their informal supports with common goals of reducing time spent out of the home and community, preventing entry into the foster care system, and improving the lives of children and their families.
