When Anita became pregnant with her second child, her boyfriend threw her out of the apartment they had shared for the past five years. With no family or support systems in Rochester, Anita and her seven year old daughter, Kiara, were homeless. After a few weeks of staying with friends, Anita knew she needed to find a safe home for her daughter and new baby.
Thanks to donors like you, each and every day YWCA doors are open to provide a Warm Bed, a hot meal and a safe, secure home during crisis. Your $50 gift will assist Anita and Kiara in finding their own path to stability and success – in a safe, supportive environment.
With the uncertainty of the political climate and the current government shutdown – funds needed to provide these Warm Beds is also uncertain.
You can combat the effects of the shutdown – one Warm Bed at a time. With a $50 gift you can make sure your voice is heard as a supporter of the most vulnerable.
