the future is bright

Your choice to support Youth Advocate Services (YAS) can make a tremendous difference in the life of a youth - and their family - across Ohio. A donation of any size allows us to continue to offer the services and programs that strengthen families and improve every life we serve. 

Your donations provide funding for:

  • Transportation of a foster youth to visits with their bio family.

  • Diapers, wipes, and other necessities for families most in need.

  • Summer camp and/or extracurricular activity fees for a youth in your community.

  • Resources and training for our staff to expand efforts, impact the lives of more children and families in central Ohio, and promote quality outcomes.  

YAS is a nationally accredited, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. Therefore, charitable contributions may be tax deductible. Click here to view our official registration and financial information.
