Yo Soy Ella Inc, founder and executive director Sarah Taylor, had a sit down with Forbes to briefly discuss
team building within the nonprofit sector in which she highlighted key takeaways that one should look
for within their team building strategy. She expressed this interview was an interesting experience as
she shifted from the usual of sharing her primary responsibilities of serving the community towards
noting the internal structures that it took for her to continue the course of social impact with her
nonprofit for successful 8yrs.
Sarah has repositioned some the organization’s services and programming to meet the demands that
the COVID-19 health pandemic has presented. Within the work of mental and emotional wellness,
Sarah, along with her team of phenomenal women established an incredible umbrella of services to
meet the unprecedented needs of individuals and families who are faced with daily changes that this
health pandemic has caused.
Yo Soy Ella, concentrates on the mental and emotional needs of Latina, Black and women of color in
which their Covid community response outreach titled “Compassion Above The Crisis” has enabled them
to provide 5 sources of services that each uniquely promote mental & emotional wellness. These
services range from free counseling support for anyone who’s mental and emotional needs have been
exacerbated from this pandemic, to providing local hospitals’ janitorial/custodian staff with custom care
kits to acknowledge our appreciation for the overlooked essential workers. Their biggest outreach
initiative is the community diaper drive in which they have currently provided baby essentials for 700
families who’ve been financially impacted from the health pandemic.
