“I’ve been a volunteer on the YWCA’s Ambassadors Council for more 6 moths. I’ve seen firsthand how the YWCA provides critical, life-changing services to women and their families, including counseling, advocacy, economic empowerment, violence prevention, and education and training. They’re helping to prevent domestic violence and helping those who have experienced physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse in healing from the trauma and establishing a path forward. Please help us continue this work by making your donation today!”
