YAI is seeking volunteers to sew cotton face masks for the people we support and our staff. YAI supports over 20,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Right now, we urgently need masks for our clinical services as well as our residences and programs.

We would appreciate masks made and mailed to us as soon as possible.
