Help Make A Difference In the Lives of Women 
and Children In Need

As our fiscal year draws to a close in the coming weeks, the need for your support is greater than ever...

Each year, over one thousand women and children turn to the YWCA in times of crisis and transition. Through our housing and teen services, women find the strength they didn’t know they had.

The strength to overcome the challenges of homelessness, teen pregnancy and more. The strength to work out their lives.

While we cannot predict what the economy will do in the year ahead, we know for certain that cuts in government funding will continue, threatening each and every one of our programs and services.

Contributions from individuals like you really do make a difference.

Your gift today will help provide over 40,000 days and nights of care and comfort each year through our supportive housing programs.  It will help hundreds of young mothers prepare to lead healthy, productive lives and achieve academic success.

Your gift will do this and so much more.

Please consider making a gift in support of our 2011-2012 Annual Appeal today. Your investment in the YWCA will pay dividends for women and children in our community for years to come.


STORIES OF HOPE:

Everyone's Situation is Different

Shantel and Jamani have moved four times in the last year due to a foreclosed family home and strained relationships. With nowhere else to turn, Shantel and her daughter arrived at the YWCA.

At the YWCA, Shantel worked with staff to find long-term housing in a safe neighborhood and signed up for a GED course. She moved into her own apartment earlier this year.

To other women who are faced with homelessness, she says:

“Keep trying, don’t give up. It’s hard. Everybody’s situation is different.”
