BENEFITING: YWCA Evanston/North Shore
ORGANIZER: YWCA Evanston/North Shore
Hi Everyone - I am asking you to join me in a $10 donation to our wonderful YWCA. If 10 of you join me at $10, we will add to the goal of 100 pages raising $100 each. Your donation will be part of a crucial push to $10,000!
Not a day goes by that the YWCA does not help someone struggling with domestic violence. (And for my Dewey moms, our kids go to school with kids benefitting from the Y's services...) Our first point of contact might be a call on the crisis line or a counseling appointment with a woman still living with her abuser. It might be in the middle of the night, when a mother arrives at emergency shelter. Or it could be at the courthouse, where we assist survivors with the intimidating process of getting an Order of Protection. No matter the circumstances, we're here.
Access to services, counseling, legal advocacy, and longer-term housing make a real difference in survivors’ ability to safely break free from violence, heal from abuse and lead self-sufficient lives. For survivors in our 16-community catchment area, the services provided by YWCA Evanston/ North Shore are critical. Your gift in any amount will make a difference. Thank you!
