The McNabb Center Youth Emergency Shelter (YES) provides shelter care for children and adolescents (ages 0-17). YES is a temporary home and place of stability for children who need immediate care. Children in the care of YES will have a comfortable bed, food, clothing, hygiene care, safety education, counseling and, most importantly, love. Children are brought to YES by law enforcement for reasons that include: neglect, abandonment, abuse, and protective custody. Having a place to bring children allows law enforcement to continue in the field, while the child is in a safe, home-like setting, rather than an office. An average stay at YES is 24-48 hours. The program offers follow up services to children and families, including intensive case management services to prevent future disruption and ensure stability. Children are brought to the shelter by law enforcement so that officers can get back on the road.

YES is staffed and available by phone at (423) 586-7740, 24/7 as needed to serve clients.
