Together We’re Better
Together we’re better underlies our belief that as a result of bringing people together, the YAI Network is much stronger than any individual or small group of individuals could ever be.
Together we’re better applies to our outstanding staff , and to our participatory management philosophy that allows staff members at every level to work as a team, and to bring to life the philosophy ,standards and objectives of the organization.
Together we’re better applies to our work with families who, through access to information, options and advocacy, find hope. When family members experience the dramatic, positive impact of our Network, they know that their for their loved ones need not be abandoned.
Together we’re better applies to people with disabilities of all ages who are empowered to live life to the fullest—to make choices, live independently, participate in the community, work and love.
Together we’re better applies to all those who support the work of our Network including our Boards of Trustees, advisory councils—business leaders, families, young professionals and friends—government leaders, donors, employers of the people we serve, volunteers and all who lend their influence, passion and philanthropy to empower our work.
Since our founding in 1957, the YAI Network has often been referred to as the first and the best. Member agencies of the YAI Network and staff have been cited for excellence, innovation and leadership and garnered top awards. But the real winners are each of us who is enriched by living in a more just and humane world.
We honor your partnership and invite the wholehearted participation of old and new friends in the future of our extraordinary mission.
