Thanks to all of you who helped us during the recent government shutdown. Your support gave us confidence you support the YWCA and the women and children who turn to us in their time of need.
Non-profit agencies like the YWCA that rely on government funding to deliver services to victims of violence are essential links in the social safety net that protects our communities. Our ability to serve those in need can be quickly affected by interruptions in government funding.
The potential for another government crisis remains a possibility – as early as mid-February. So, we invite you to contact your legislators urging them not to use government workers and contractors, as well as victims of violence or poverty, as hostages in a political negotiation.
Here are handy links to local legislators’ offices:
Thank you again for your support!
