Yes! of America United, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Florida non-profit organization operating in Tampa. Our goal is to help people living with disabilities by encouraging them to get involved in our community. Yes! of America United, Inc. does this by enriching, educating, and empowering the individuals through various activities, such as seminars, outings, and volunteering within our Tampa community.
Yes! of America United, Inc. has many inspiring stories of how YES! has helped individuals become valuable members of the community at large.
YES! was started in 2002 in Tampa, when it evolved out of a blind support group. Becki, founder of YES!, realized the need for a more inclusive approach; one that includes people with all kinds of disabilities, and not concentrating on just one specific group. Yes! of America United, Inc. is inclusive of all abilities including, but not limited to brain and spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis (CF), epilepsy, multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular dystrophy (MD), down syndrome, developmental delays, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), blindness and low vision, hearing loss or deafness, and/or sensory processing disorders.
None of this could be accomplished without the help of others in the Tampa community.
