YANA (You Are Never Alone) is a worker training center in Rockaway Park that became a hurricane relief hub.
YANA opened its doors a week before Superstorm Sandy devastated the region. Its intended purpose was to bring jobs to the Rockaways, with an emphasis on green, sustainable technologies.

With the support of Occupy Sandy, Greenpeace, and countless dedicated volunteers it re-emerged after the storm as an important relief site and community hub, providing hot meals, free medical treatment, legal counseling, and more to support the peninsula. We are currently in the process of rebuilding Yana, after it suffered severe damages from flooding in the storm. Follow the story at:
