Joel Schlessinger donates FixMySkin Balms to Youth Emergency Services

Posted by Joel Schlessinger in Uncategorized

Joel Schlessinger and his son Daniel, the creators of the FixMySkin Healing Balms, recently donated 250 of the balms to help the struggling youth who visit the Youth Emergency Services (YES) center. Homeless and at-risk youth in the Omaha area often do not have access to the resources that they need. YES is an organization that strives to empower youth in the Omaha area to help them get back on their feet.

Joel Schlessinger donated the balms for youths who do not have access to medical care.

The FixMySkin balms were originally created by Joel Schlessinger and his son Daniel who was looking for a way to heal common skin concerns more effectively than regular balms. Children who are served by YES often experience skin irritation and concerns yet they are unable to visit a dermatologist to get help. The hydrocortisone in the balms treats symptoms of dry skin, eczema, psoriasis and rashes by healing inflammation and reducing irritation. These balms can be used up to three times a day on children of all ages.

“These young people don’t have money to spend on high-quality skin care products so this will help them,” says Mary Fraser Meints, the Executive Director for YES.

Common concerns such as chapped lips and dry skin in winter can be relieved so the young people at the center can work on improving their lives.

Support from Joel Schlessinger and others allows the organization to complete their mission.

The goal of YES is to serve homeless and at-risk youth by empowering them to become self-sufficient. The organization strives to provide them with the services and resources they need such as food, shelter, clothing and a support system.

“They can get a hot meal, they can get a shower, they can get information about jobs or housing,” says Fraser Meints. “They connect with other young people and they can get help with other skills that they need for jobs.”
