Where Your Donation Goes
Youth Empowering Parents is managed by a group of individuals who work hard to ensure your donations best support our cause. Our administration expenses are significantly lower than other charities, and each year dozens of volunteers help generate funds through various events. Each year YEP serves over 2,000 people. Your generous donations help us continue to enrich the lives of marginalized people in underserved communities.
