Employee Assistance Donation

Support Teton Youth & Family Services Employees so we can continue to work during this crisis.

The last two weeks navigating the COVID-19 crisis has shown us that now, more than ever, we need to ensure our children and families who are most at-risk for abuse and neglect have the resources they need to endure. Help support TYFS employees so we can continue to work during this crisis.

WAYS TO HELP
The following are ways we need your help:

Financial Contributions – We are working to support an Employee Assistance Fund during this crisis for direct support to help employees pay rent, purchase food, pay for utilities, and meet other basic needs. The fund will also support childcare help so employees can continue their scheduled work hours to maintain a continuity of service. We employ over 40 individuals who are providing direct crisis care and putting their own lives on hold to ensure our programs are available to help youth and families in crisis. 100% of funds will go towards direct payments to employees and on-site childcare.

Gift Certificates – for take-out food at local restaurants, this benefits our local restaurants and youth and employees at TYFS! Or gift certificates to grocery stores to help with residential program food needs.

Care Packages – Let our youth in care and employees know you care! Include personal touches like knitted hats or a note from you and your family. Send packages to:
