Naranja Youth Enterprises South (Y.E.S.) Program

Partnering With The United Way To Make A Difference

In 1988, we implemented the Naranja Youth Enterprises South (Y.E.S.) Program within the Naranja Public Housing Projects.  Through this program, we work with delinquent and pre-delinquent youth in the Naranja area. We admit youth into this program who are referred to us by various sources such as: the police, the courts, juvenile authorities, schools, parents and other.  The United Way funds this program.

You Showed Me You Care Now I Care Too!


The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.
