Our Funder

John and Charlotte Yates

“I never dreamed of being in a position where I could help financially, but now that I am, I know that it is going to a great cause.  I would have loved to have had something like Amistad to help me when I was going through a difficult time with one of my own children. Giving to this organization has satisfied a need that I have to help other parents who may be struggling.”

-Charlotte Yates


Our Mission

Amistad’s aim is to be a safe environment for those who may have need of professional services, counseling, childcare, or developmental therapies.  We are particularly invested in aiding families with infants, young children, and adolescents. We believe in the vitality of a family’s early life cycle, and that healthy early attachments lead to lifelong bonds and success in relationships.
