The YW gives women and families in need of safe and secure housing the chance to regain stable footing and the hope for a better future. We don't always see the choices we have in front of us or have the ability to make them. Being part of the YW is a way of helping women and families whose choices are limited have the support network to be empowered and lead healthy and productive lives.
