More and more young people need access to 24/7 crisis intervention and stabilization, a safe place to sleep during the day or night, and trauma-informed mental health support.
Your donation ensures that youth can get the help they need when they need it and where they need it.


A gift each month makes a huge difference year-round for youth and ensures that they can access help on the day they need it most. Monthly giving also makes it easy for you to budget your donation!

Donating by cheque

Donations by cheque can be made out to Youth Empowerment and Support Services and mailed to:

9310 82 Ave
Edmonton AB  T6C 0Z6

If you are sending a cheque in the mail, we encourage you to send it from a Canada Post office. Sending from the post office or even registering your mail ensures that you get a receipt and/or tracking information on your donation

General in-kind donations such as clothes and personal items can be directed to the Bissell Thrift Shop (8818 118 Avenue) and identify that the donation is for YESS. The Bissell Centre will provide YESS with these essential items, and surplus items will benefit the Bissell Centre clientele too.

While we cannot accept unsolicited in-kind donations at our location, YESS will continue to work with our generous donors and community for dedicated campaigns that will support youth.

Your donation will always support people experiencing homelessness in our community.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact us at 780.468.7070 or email
