who. what. why.

Young Professionals Against Poverty (YPAP) is a philanthropic network of highly talented, generous, and compassionate young professionals in the greater South Bend area. Founded in 2006, YPAP has grown from a small group of 15-20 to an influential organization of over 100 members today. YPAP brings together creative and service-minded individuals for one common purpose: to help the guests at South Bend’s Center for the Homeless break the cycle of homelessness and extreme poverty. Members of YPAP...

  • Volunteer at the Center for the Homeless.
  • Raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Center each year.
  • Serve as vocal and well-informed advocates for the homeless in our community, and work to dispel common but harmful misconceptions about homelessness.

We warmly invite you to explore our website and learn more about our members and activities.

We aren’t just against poverty…we’re fighting it.
