In partnership with compassionate community members in Berkeley, YEAH! (Youth, Engagement, Advocacy, and Housing) provides shelter, case-management, mental health counseling, and supportive services to young people ages 18 to 25 who are experiencing homelessness. YEAH! programs focus on co-creating a community with young people to help them achieve the stability, wellness, and personal goals they desire. Volunteers support the two supervisors who watch over and lead the shelter’s residents, helping out in preparing and serving meals, washing dishes, and overseeing shower and laundry facilities.
