Spring and early summer are a favorite time of the year at the YWCA because they are a season of renewal and growth. A time in which hope blossoms and grows into something beautiful and strong, just like the women and children at the YWCA. Our goal is to provide somewhere safe for them to come to escape violence in their homes and a place where they are nurtured and supported to build rewarding violence-free futures.

With your help, “Jessica” is free from abuse for the first time in her adult life. But there are still many more women and mothers struggling, and that’s why we are reaching out today.
