Emergency Shelter

“I don’t know what I would have done without the help I received from the YWCA. If it wasn’t for you welcoming me into your safe house, I probably would not be here today to tell my story. They helped me throughout the entire process, from leaving my abuser to finding a safe place for me and my son.” ~ Domestic Violence Client
