Changing the World. One Mama at a Time.

YANA was born in 2017 after two Douglas County tragedies changed the trajectory of motherhood in our community. Two moms took their lives and the lives of their children.  Our mission is to change the world one mama at a time – ensuring that no mom ever feels alone.

We believe All moms deserve to feel safe, accepted, and valued. Our programs strive to give all moms in our community the support they need.
