During these uncertain times, how can we help?

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.

Making a face mask? We would love to see you in action! Feel free to tag us on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter @yainetwork, use #yainevercloses, or email pictures to email@example.com.
Not crafty? You can still help support YAI's frontline staff in keeping programs operating safely and successfully by contributing to the YAI Covid Emergency Fund at yai.org/covidemergencyfund.
We appreciate you taking the time to help ensure the safety of our YAI family.
