Mission Statement

Brighter Days, Inc. exists to bring restoration to the mind, body and spirit of the hurting and healing in the New Orleans area through empowerment, utilizing clinical interventions and spiritual support, along with community outreach.


Restoration is healing in the mind, body and spirit.

Brighter Days, Inc. was established in November of 2002. The original office site was located at 4948 Chef Mentur Highway in the New Orleans Federal Building in the Gentilly area of New Orleans, LA. In August of 2005, the office was forced to close due to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Despite this reality, Yanada made herself available to the community by maintaining the business telephone number. As people sort assistance, she provided support and referral services to former patients and others in need.

Furthermore, she held on to the dream of bringing ‘Brighter Days’ back to New Orleans. In the summer of 2011, paperwork was initiated, and by January of 2012, Brighter Days, Inc. re-opened its doors. The current office site is located at 2714 Canal Street, Suite 408, New Orleans, LA 70119
