BENEFITING: YWCA of Brooklyn
The YWCA of Brooklyn is a phenomenal organization. After a 4 year standoff to retain our 120 year old building and the homes of 300 low-income women and seniors with a large bank that shall remain nameless, we won! Kinda.
We were able to maintain our current housing and build 84 additional studio apartments exclusively or low income and formally homeless individuals. We also opened the Community Center for Social Justice. However, all of this costs money and we are tapped.
And we need a website see for yourself, www.ywcabklyn.org. Its kind of embarrasing and we need the world to see our awesomeness and to inform the public of all the activities,events, and opportunities that are occurring. While we would like to allocate money to this specifically, the bulk of our funding goes into surviving, maintaining the health of the building and providing programming for our residents such as senior yoga, Bingo Night, cooking demos, and Film night.
