Y.E.S. (Youth Excellence in Service) Award

Applications are due Monday, July 15! Please submit all applications to crrafoundation@carolinahome.com, as our office will be closed Friday, July 12 and Monday, July 15 for our move.

Beginning in 2019, the Housing Opportunity Foundation and its Realtor® members are instituting the YES Award to recognize and celebrate the area’s youth who are engaged in improving the quality of life in the region.

Young people who are engaged in service mature into adults who serve the community. This award was established to encourage youth to address a broad spectrum of needs in an effort to build a stronger community.

It is our hope that all young people will realize their potential to impact the lives of others and, in return, find fulfillment in their own lives.
