YAI believes in seeing beyond disability. We are driven by our mission of living, loving, working, and learning. Our person-centered approach positions us to empower the people we support to reach their goals, both big and small, every day. YAI has grown into one of New York State’s largest social services nonprofits. Our staff of 4,000 provides supports and services to thousands of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and their families.
