Youth Empowerment Services-YES Program

Colfax County Youth Empowerment Services

What We Do
CCYES Home Visiting Program is a non-profit organization that provides educational services to parent, grandparents, and extended family members.  Home visiting helps parents create an environment that positively impacts their child's social and emotional development and prepares him/her for a productive future. 

Home visiting is a free service offered to pregnant women and families with children from 0-5. Our home visitors offer non-judgmental support for your family and help prepare parents to cope with the everyday stressors associated with the transition to parenting, which are inevitable when a new baby enters your family. We work with other community organizations to help parents navigate the systems that are available to reduce those stressors. This leaves more time and energy for the joys of parenting as the family builds a relationship with their child.
