You Are Not Alone (Y.A.N.A.)
Submitted By Fremont PD
The Fremont Police Department, in partnership with the City of Fremont's Human Services Department, announces the Y.A.N.A. program - a free telephone reassurance service provided by Police Volunteers for City of Fremont residents.
In the City of Fremont we want our elderly, disabled, and homebound to know that they are never alone. Using the Y.A.N.A. program, Fremont Police Volunteers will provide enrolled participants with peace of mind and a sense of security for those who enjoy the independence of living alone but realize that a medical crisis could render them helpless.
How does it work?
Police volunteers will provide each participant with a daily check-in phone call, Monday - Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon. If an enrollee does not answer the phone after a few attempts, a series of follow up steps are taken to ensure the participants safety and well-being, which could include a home visit.
Enrollees must want the service and participate in an assessment prior to acceptance into the program.
Volunteers and staff are ready to begin accepting participants. If you know someone who could benefit from this service, please visit our website www.fremontpolice.org/Yana or call (510) 790-6691.
