- YES still does not have a building, but we're making baby steps of progress toward that goal. In April YES participated in The Dalles Cherry Festival with a booth, selling snacks and soft drinks. It was a good experience in contact with the community and we made nearly $500 for the shelter.
- Even though we do not yet have a building we have been able to provide intervention services to some youth and their families, helping them to come to a better understanding of each other and find stability that allows them to move forward toward achieving their personal goals.
- We are making some progress toward acquiring a facility. Thanks to donors who share our concern for the youth of our area we have collected about $20,000 toward purchase of a building. That seems like a tiny amount toward the goal of $300,000, but it's a start. We continue to search for existing buildings that will suit our needs or that we can easily modify to do so. That's quite a challenge!
