The Young Professionals Advisory Board (YPAB) is a philanthropic network of talented, compassionate and generous young people working to support the guests at the Center for the Homeless. The group's main purpose is to plan, direct and implement activities to engage the local 20 to 40 year old demographic in fundraising, volunteerism, education and advocacy efforts to benefit the Center. 

Volunteerism

YPAB has been in many volunteer initiatives at the Center. No matter what talents an individual member possesses, there is always a way to utilize that talent to contribute to the battle against homelessness. 

Fundraising

A trademark of YPAB has been the engineering of fun, creative ways to raise funds to support programming at the Center. 

Advocacy

YPAB is a strong base of advocates urged to educate those on the unique, comprehensive approach that the Center's staff uses to assist each guest in their quest to once again reach self-sufficiency.

Social Network

YPAB does great work in advocating for the Center but it has always been a major focus of the group to provide an opportunity for its members to socially engage other young people in an informal atmosphere. Many great friendships have been initiated, developed and flourished as a result of YPAB.
