You Are Not Alone (YANA) Program
You Are Not Alone (YANA) is a free program offered by the Goodyear Police Department's Volunteers in Police Services (VIPS). This program provides regular phone calls and home visits to seniors who have limited family or community contacts. Seniors can also call the YANA program for help finding specific services and resources.
YANA promotes peace of mind and a sense of security for elderly residents. It's a great resource for disabled seniors who enjoy the independence of living on their own, but don't have friends or family members nearby to check on them regularly.
If an emergency occurs during a phone call or home visit, the VIPS/YANA representative will arrange for a police officer to be sent to the residence right away.
Seniors can request registration forms from the Goodyear Police Department VIPS/YANA Program. Complete the forms, including name, address, phone number, emergency contacts with phone numbers, medical information, number of pets on the premises, and vehicle information. Forms must be completed and include the original signature of the requesting participant. Incomplete or forms without a valid original signature will not be accepted.
