You Are Y

Each day,

YWCA Mohawk Valley provides a lifeline for individuals and families fleeing domestic and sexual violence. But this year, the demand for our emergency services reached unprecedented levels.

Quarantine and isolation kept those living with violence and abuse trapped at home. Our 24-hour emergency shelters were at capacity, hundreds reached out desperately to our free and confidential crisis hotlines, and even more sought advocacy and support.

We have been busier than we could have ever imagined, but because of you, we are not alone. Because of you, we have been able to continue working and saving lives through a global pandemic.

You are why we are able to fulfill our tireless mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

As we continue to navigate through uncertain times, YWCA Mohawk Valley needs you.

Your support is how we make a difference and save lives.

You are y.
