“When you think all hope is gone, you can find a second family to point you in the right direction.”
La Rissa came to the YWCA's Emergency Housing program after becoming homeless earlier this year. "The staff was really accepting; they took the time to get to know my daughter." she says, "Most importantly, I learned about the YWCA's programs to help women find stable housing."
After a few short weeks, La Rissa moved into her own apartment, with assistance from the YWCA. These days, she spends most of her time in class. "I want to be able to provide for my daughter," she says. "I don’t want her to go through what I went through."
"Because of the YWCA, my life has changed. I have support, which I didn’t have before."
The YWCA provides over 40,000 days and nights of safety and comfort to homeless women and children in times of crisis.
You can give a homeless mom like La Rissa the security of knowing her child has a safe place to stay while she makes the transition to affordable long-term housing.
