BENEFITING: YOUNG WOMENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION YWCA OF KAUAI
EVENT: Purple Purse Challenge 2015
I gave to the YWCA of Kaua`i and I'm hoping you will too! It's hard for me to ask you to give to the YWCA, but I'm asking for your kokua (help) because throughout my professional career I've seen first hand the serious harm domestic violence has on families, especially on the children. We are so fortunate to have the YWCA, an organization that is passionate about addressing this issue directly with 24 hour crisis intervention services, support, advocacy and the use of evidence based counseling treatment models.
Not only does the YWCA work on ending domestic violence, but they are also leading other agencies in creating a supportive environment fro the LGBTQ community and are even helping other agencies be more inclusive by providing training and resources. They are a model for deversity and inclusiveness which is very important to me.
The YWCA of Kaua`i empowers women and their families everyday, so they can lead healthier lives. Let's keep our community safer for everyone by making sure the YWCA has the funding they need! Mahalo for helping me reach my funding goal!
