YAO is building Texas's first Women Veteran and Women First Responder Park in Beaumont Texas. This is the only tribute 100% dedicated to women in the State of Texas. Inside of the park YAO will build a Victory Garden. Vegetables grown in the garden will be given to children.
The park will be a permanent open-air exhibt, where people can come and learn about the remarkable women veterans and first responders who are our unsung heroes. YAO wants to teach visitors, especially young girls, that a veteran or first-responder can look like their mom.
