Welcome to YANA


The Yana Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit corporation, 501(c)(3), located in Fort Myers, FL. We are designed for our members to meet and share their experience, strength and hope with each other because of our common concern for people trying to achieve and maintain a life free from the use of alcohol and other chemicals. Our doors opened in 1977 and it is self supporting and runs solely on memberships, donations from individuals, groups who have meetings here, and others. We have over 45 groups that meet weekly.

Yana holds meetings from 6:15 am until 9pm just about every day, 11pm on Friday’s. Please check the calendar Tab for AA, Alanon, Alateen, and Adult Children of Alcoholics (ACOA) meeting schedules and maps.

Our singleness of purpose is to provide a safe, clean, and supportive environment in which 12 Step members can work at changing their lives. The work of the Foundation is carried out by an elected Board of Directors of nine members, who donate their time and energy to which are responsible to maintain the facilities, and to plan future growth, and be responsive to the members.
