Welcome to the Fort Bend County Sheriff's You Are Not Alone (YANA) Program
You Are Not Alone is a telephone reassurance program sponsored by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office for seniors or disabled citizens of Fort Bend County who live alone.
Background checked volunteers make a call and a visit to the participant to check on their welfare. If for some reason they do not answer the telephone, we will try again at fifteen-minute intervals. If the telephone is still unanswered after three calls, we will first contact a Keyholder or contact FBC Dispatch, and a Deputy Sheriff or the participants’ local police agency will be dispatched to their residence to check on their welfare.
The Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office is proud of the volunteers who make up the You Are Not Alone Program, better known as YANA. This week, as we celebrate National Volunteer Week, we recognize the folks who take the time to check in on their neighbors. YANA is a telephone reassurance program for seniors and disabled citizens of Fort Bend County who live alone. Our volunteers call them and conduct welfare checks regularly.
If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity, look no further! YANA is now accepting volunteers; check out the link below to find the application.
There is no charge for this service. You decide what time of the morning you want to be called. If you will be away from home at the agreed calling time, you must contact the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s You Are Not Alone Program at 281-341-YANA (9262) to check out of the program until you return home.
