2019 Home For The Holidays Event

Holiday Raffle


Richard, Courtney, and John are 3 of 22 who have recently transitioned from foster care into an apartment they can call home, and we want their holiday experience in their new home to be a great one.  Hundreds of kids age out of the foster care system without finding a stable household, but Youth Empowerment Success Services (YESS) is helping these young adults break the cycle by providing them with their very first apartment.  Help us create a holiday experience in the comfort of their home.  All proceeds will go towards a full Thanksgiving & Christmas meal, Christmas trees and decorations, and Christmas gifts for them and their children (for those who are parents).  Support an awesome cause by purchasing a $5 raffle today. Winner will receive 20% of raised funds. This is a virtual raffle. Each $5.00 donation will receive a raffle ticket number and there will be a live raffle of the winner.  Tickets are 2 for $10, 3 for $15, 5 for $25, 10 for $50. Contributions are accepted via Cash App at $YESS4Youth, H4H Raffle in the subject line
