Dear Friends of Youth in Our Community,
We are excited to announce this year’s annual YES to YOUTH Gala to be held on August 28, 2021, at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott. This year, we are honoring Mr. and Mrs. Zach and Rachel Richmond. Our corporate honoree is LJA Engineering, in memoriam of Mr. Calvin Ladner. We are so grateful for their support and dedication.
Here are the reasons why we need YOUR support…
As we enter into the summer months, and on the heels of the pandemic, your support is more important than ever. We are seeing an increased need across the county for our services. Despite the pandemc, plans are on track for the BridgeWay Shelter capacity to expand from 15 beds to 30 beds this year! Our commitment is to provide crisis intervention, counseling services, suicide prevention, and shelter at no cost to the clients, because the ability to pay should never be a barrier to a child or family seeking help.
For over 40 years, YES to YOUTH - Montgomery County Youth Services has provided:
•Individual, group and family mental health services
•Crisis intervention for youth and families
•Teen suicide prevention
•BridgeWay Emergency Youth Shelter (Ages 10-18)
•Healthy Support programs for pregnant and parenting teens
•Prevention presentations and crisis counseling in schools
•Decision Parenting and Youth Skills Groups
•24-Hour Crisis Hotline 888-756-8682
Your involvement in the YES to YOUTH Gala will save a life. With your help, we can reach more children and continue making an impact on our community.

With your help, we save lives.
