Weathering Sandy

Busy day at YAI, our CEO Stephen Freeman joined NYS Commissioner Courtney Burke of the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities on CBS This Morning on a story about how this week's storm impacted people with disabilities and the staff who have worked around the clock to ensure these individuals are safe and secure.

Superstorm Sandy wreaked havoc in the Northeast this week, and while many residents faced hardship, New York and New Jersey's disabled community faced the storm as one of the most vulnerable segments of society.
Thousands of developmentally disabled people faced power outages and food shortages and their caregivers sacrifices their own needs in order to see the disabled through the storm.
