BENEFITING: YOUNG WOMENS CHRISTIAN ASSOC OF OAHU
Take Netrisa, for example.
After a messy custody battle, she was out of money and out of options. She needed help paying the rent and landing a job. She found the YWCA and here’s what happened: “What I’ve received from the YWCA here on O’ahu has been the opportunity to stabilize my housing and my daughter; the opportunity to regain my self-confidence in my professional skills and abilities; the opportunity to smile again with my child and with other people around me. Those are priceless things. I can’t wait until I’m in a position to come in here and mentor.”
In mid-October, Netrisa landed a position as a counselor at a community college. Soon, she’ll be coming in as a mentor for a cohort of women who will sit where she once did. Your prior gifts helped fund her journey—and your investment is already multiplying.
Whether it’s $50 for professional attire, career coaching, and a support network for a woman transitioning out of incarceration, or $500 for a month of housing and meals for a woman and child leaving domestic violence behind, the amount of good your donation does is immeasurable.
