The Yost Family

$8,180 of $55,000 goal

Raised by 192 people in 25 months


I am a family member of the Yost Family and even typing these words out now still doesnt make it real.  The unimaginable as happened to two little innocent girls who are now left with out parents to raise them.  Our hearts are completely broken and will miss them every single day that passes.  We will remember the good times we had and remind these two beautiful girls of how much they were loved by their parents.  The girls are 6 and 8 and will need all the help they can get in this extremely tragic event. 

Every donation received will be to help for future care of these children. 

Our family sends our deepest gratitude for any help.  Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.  We truly appreciate all of your help and kind words while our family mourns the loss of two beloved family members.

Hello to all our supporters.

We wanted to give everyone an update. We apologize we haven't done one sooner as you can imagine things have been crazy. As some parts of this tragedy have started to slow down we wanted to update you that the girls are doing very well. They are now with a more permanent family member, and are doing better. Of course as anyone can imagine there is a LONG road ahead of them with recovery. We continue to ask for your prayers and support for them. The process legally is very long and slow.

We also want to apologize that at this time we are unable to post any photos of the girls due to the nature of this case. However, we absolutely want you all to know how thankful we are for your support and prayers.

Court dates for the men arrested were again pushed back until January. That is all we know about them at this time unfortunately.


Thank you thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

I want to know what is being done for Katlynn!! She was not charged and needs help and a place to go! She 's suffered a lot of hate and cruelty in her life over her teeth and jaw which people are saying is s deformity which could be fixed. I feel for her little sisters, but you cannot dismiss this 17!yearvold who has been the object of much cruelty, and possible abuse.' She is a human being too!! What are the plans for her? Who will take her? Where will she live?

Since this bars me from attending furry and brony conventions for a while, I will be giving up my convention budget to this fund. It had been fun being a part of the fandom. I am truly saddened these girls lost their loved ones.

The girls should be eligible for Social Security survivors benefits. I've provided a link that should be helpful. https://www.ssa.gov/planners/survivors/onyourown4.html

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss, and of the act of senseless violence committed against your loved ones. I am an organizer of an event in Northern California geared towards those who appreciate costuming. There are several people in the furry community among us, and we are in shock and pain to hear of your loss. Our event isn't huge, but I intend to talk to other local event organizers and see what we can do together to help solicit donations, auction goods, and raise funds to help provide for these young children, as well as the child of Billy Boucher. Words seem as inadequate as money in the face of such a loss, but I do want you to know that your family is not alone in its sorrow and grief, and to the extent that we can try to make this less of a hardship on you and your family, we will do our best to help.
