At YAIPak Outreach, everything starts with the extravagant love of Christ. God pursues each one of us to redefine our identity, restore our dignity, and remind us how deeply we are loved. With a focus on women, children and veterans, we are witnessing that power of extravagant love each day.
Our warehouse is located at 211 S. Second Street. We are open for donations and volunteers on Mondays 9am-12pm, Wednesdays 12pm-2pm and Thursdays 5pm-8pm.
Wow! What an unbelievable year we have had. We are so amazed at what the Lord and our community has accomplished in 2021! Here's a look into some of what we could do because of YOUR help!
- PROJECT FOSTER HOPE -
Over 2021 we have seen thousands of precious children’s lives impacted from our Missions Trips to Jellico, TN and Jacksonville, FL all the way to our local home communities receiving Back to School supplies.
We have walked with hundreds of children experiencing trauma through Child Protective Services providing Brand NEW items in our Boxes of Joy filled with clothing, age appropriate toys, shoes and hygiene that is their very own.
We have met unbelievable families caring for these babies and we have watched these incredibly strong children grow up and be a part of life in our warehouse.
- PROJECT PATRIOT HOPE -
We have served over 1,000 veterans this year alone through our Operation Turkey Drop and hundreds of Totes of Hope that are making a house a home for those who have served our country.
- PROJECT REBUILD HOPE -
We had the opportunity to be Boots on the Ground in Waverly, TN hours after the flooding occurred in August. We were able to ensure those families were taken care of again for our Jolly Merry Christmas event in December
After devastating tornadoes hit and decimated many areas in KY we were able to be influential in helping Pastor Keeton set up a functional and organized distribution center in Dawson Springs for the families in order to start to rebuild their lives after such tragedy. Each family that came in were able to receive Christmas gifts for their kids in order to still have a special time together for the holiday season.
- BE THE HOPE -
We have started 2 new microhomes in 2021 that will be placed on the grid in Nashville in 2022 to provide lock and key for some of our sweet friends on the streets.
YAI Hawaii Chapter is thriving and meeting so many friends to help. Amber and her husband Dale are leading and loving people well on the island of Oahu.
We have experienced our friends make the choice to recover and have been able to provide several full sponsorships into long term recovery programs.
We have seen many of our friends find HOME and make a move to see life change getting their very own apartments!
TOGETHER we have served and reached approximately 400,000 individuals. Through direct and indirect services we have impacted over 18,000 children. It has been an incredible year and we look forward to what 2022 has! We can’t say thank you enough for your impact in making YAIPak Outreach what it truly is!!
May you be wonderfully rewarded for your partnership with us in 2021.

How You Can Help
We have encountered more requests for children experiencing trauma and going into the Foster Care System. At this time we have a need for KIDS BRAND NEW PANTS and SHOES.
The sizes needed for pants vary from 5T all the way through kids 18-20 for both boys and girls. We ask that the pants are pretty neutral as we have many shirts but no bottoms. For girls any neutral colored leggings/jeggings or jeans and for boys any neutral colored sweatpants or jeans would be HUGE!
The sizes for shoes vary from child's 11 all the way to adult 7 for both boys and girls. We are looking for new gym shoes that can be worn in pretty much any situation.

Thank you so much for your generosity.
Your Generosity at Work
“An individual can make a difference, but a team can make a miracle.”
The Clarksville Jeep Crew continually shows up with our team. They showed up in Dawson Springs to do what they do. Help others.
They come only to serve and bring encouragement to those needing it the most. They loaded their Jeep’s with supplies and headed into the midst of destruction. One by one they visited families.
Until… this one house that laid in ruins had a woman digging around debris. The crew heard her story and went to work...
It would be a needle in the haystack, but the team wanted to give it their best.
All the woman wanted was to find her moms wedding ring.
Together the team searched through the piles. When a Christmas miracle on the eve of all eves took place.
THEY FOUND IT. WE BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!!
THANK YOU CLARKSVILLE JEEP CREW !!
We love you and appreciate all you do!
