"The YWCA feels like home. I can count on them for support, words of encouragement, and incredible resources that help improve the quality of my life. I am especially thankful for the support I've received in pursuing my dreams as an entrepreneur. I don't think that I could've gotten this kind of care and empowerment somewhere else. It's a very special place for me and I'm very thankful the YWCA is a part of my life." - from Kimberly, a domestic violence survivor served by YWCA Metropolitan Chicago
