Yolanda Vitulli

Turning a negative into a positive, making lemonade out of lemons…whatever the expression is, it aptly describes Yolanda Vitulli’s charitable work. Despite all the difficulties of raising an autistic son, she felt compelled to start Tender Care Human Services in Jamaica, Queens. The facility is open to all of Long Island, giving those with autism help. Her Heart & Home Thrift Store supplements the cost of Tender Care’s programming. tendercareny.org
