“We know there are many families who struggle to provide the necessities for their children at this expensive time of year,” said Perry Pratt, Director of Operations at The Jones Company. “We want to do our part to make our community strong, and starting the children off as prepared for school as possible is a great opportunity for all of us to invest in the future.”

Y.E.S. operates three youth centers that offer educational and recreational programs as alternatives for kids ages 6-18 during after school hours, weekends and summer break. The programs offered by Y.E.S. effectively keep children living in the inner city off the street, giving them a safe place to go where they can engage in social, educational and cultural activities.

The company has maintained a 100% “Would Recommend” customer satisfaction rating from Woodland O’Brien homeowner surveys conducted from fourth quarter of 2008 through present. They are a local, privately held company based in Franklin, TN. For more information, visit the company’s website at or call (615)771-8006.
