How You Can Make A Difference
In 2020, due to COVID-19, the YWCA evacuated our two domestic violence shelters and made alternative arrangements for our clients to help keep them safe from the virus. This disruption added additional trauma to their already unstable situations, but our staff has made it work!
This solution cost an additional $85,000/month through September, 2022. Your contributions will make an IMMEDIATE impact to help with these expenses, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
Currently our Volunteer Opportunities are on hold, but here are ways you still can help!
