YES! of America United | Welcome!
Welcome to YES! where we give a Hand-up, not a Hand-out! YES! is here to enrich persons living with disabilities via our educating outreach and programs allowing them to live engaged lives as members of their community. With YESunited.org, we have made available to you helpful resources, outreach opportunities, and information on how you can get involved by volunteering, joining YES!, or donating your time and/or resources to further our mission.
In the About section of the site, we have an introduction to our Programs, the history of how we got started, and where we are going. We have a link to our Disability Awareness program , and our annual F.A.I.R.--Family Abilities Information Rallies. YES's signature event, the F.A.I.R., is being held on October 5th, at the begining of Disability Awareness Month.
Please contact us with any questions you may have about how YES! can help you to find ways to live an enriched life as a fully integrated person within your community.
