NEW YORK, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 9, 2009 -- Sherri Shepherd, the actress, stand-up comedian and Emmy Award winning co-host of ABC-TV's "The View," has graciously agreed to serve as spokesperson for the YAI Network, a 52-year-old non-profit serving people of all ages with developmental and learning disabilities and delays and their families.
Shepherd, whose son Jeffrey attends a preschool, part of the YAI Network, for children with special needs, is passionate about spreading the word about the quality of the organization's services.
"Just to look at my son and see where he started when he came to YAI and where he is now, gives me a profound sense of gratitude," said Shepherd, who is donating her time to help the YAI Network. "I don't know what I would have done without YAI. The staff care; they love; they nurture and they want to keep building each child's potential."
