I believe in YWCA because the mission and the Board of Directors address the root commitment of supporting a healthier community. This includes empowerment, a safe environment for women and children and investment in each child and individual through skill development and education for the most vulnerable in our community. This raises us all up and honors each person’s potential. No one is discarded or less than the other. Together we empower a healthy community to carry on the tradition of nonjudgmental service and respect for our community, for our children, and grandchildren when we pass the baton.
