YANA Connects

YANA Connects is an opportunity for YANA families to connect online through a private Facebook group. It is for parents, or primary caregivers, of a YANA child, past or present. The online group offers a safe space where caregivers can lean on each other for peer support and camaraderie. The private Facebook group will also serve as a place for members and moderators to post tips, advice, and information that relates to advocacy and support for parents and caregivers as well as children’s health issues. Participation is voluntary.

Support Group Guidelines

Respect Everyone’s Privacy

Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What’s shared in the group should stay in the group.

Mutual Respect

If an individual starts a discussion that other members disagree with, it may, at the discretion of the group admin and moderators, be deleted.

No Promotions or Spam

Give more than you take to this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren’t allowed.

Be Kind and Courteous

We’re all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let’s treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.

Good to Know

When you choose to delete something you share on Facebook, Facebook removes it from the site. Some of this information is permanently deleted from their servers; however, some things can only be deleted when you permanently delete your account.
