YES House Executive Director Mary Melarangno knows the dedication and commitment it takes from her staff to make the non-profit organization such a special place for more than 1,000 children and families it has helped in need or crisis.

That’s what makes recognizing members of her team extra special because they all go above and beyond for the community. So, Melaragno and staff were excited to announce Rusty Steiner for being nominated and selected as this quarter’s YES House Hero.
Steiner works Maintenance at the Gillette facility. The anonymous co-worker who nominated him said, “Rusty has worked above and beyond what anyone could possibly expect to help us get the New Transitional Living location up and running and still maintain all their other responsibilities, not to mention shovel snow so that we can get around safely. He works well as a team member and never complains or makes you feel like he is tired or not more than happy to help with any task that arises.”

The award is given to a staff member who was nominated by fellow staff members that they have noticed going above and beyond for youth and the YES House.
