AmeriSpec Home Inspection Services always enjoys taking part in community events. In light of all the negativity in the world and on social media, we are proud to take part in something good and pay it forward. This years Omaha Area Board of Realtors golf tournament, which was supported by the many affiliates and realtors in this great community, joined forces in August at the Tiburon Golf and Country club for some friendly competition.
The goal: To raise money and awareness for YES (Youth Emergency Services). “Partnering in the community is a big part of our culture here at AmeriSpec” says owner Tom Sutko. “Giving back is something we all should do if possible. Without someone having done that for me, I wouldn’t be where I am today.” That’s powerful and true for many.
So who and what is Youth Emergency Services?
Youth Emergency Services (YES) was founded in 1974 by a group of community volunteers who noticed homeless youth hanging around in Omaha’s Old Market district.
At first, YES was led strictly by volunteers — they invited youth in crisis to stay in their homes. One morning, a volunteer woke to her kitchen cabinets being painted green, and the volunteers decided it was time to invest in a home, which became known as the YES house.
- The YES House (known today as the Emergency Shelter) has been serving youth in crisis for over 40 years.
- YES added its Street Outreach Program in 1999.
- YES launched its Transitional Living Program (TLP) and Maternity Home in 2008.

Yesterday we were able to meet with the incredible folks at YES to present them with a $4000 check. YES (no pun intended), it was as much fun, if not more to be a part of that as it was being on the course that day back in August. Thank you to all the
