Five years ago, Jeannie* was a new mom living with an abusive partner. Her son, Alex, was eight
months old. She knew she needed to leave before things got worse. With your help, YWCA staff assists survivors like Jeannie and Alex with connecting to resources for crisis management, safety planning, emergency housing, and navigating health care. Alex was accepted on full scholarship for three years at the Sprout School, ensuring kindergarten readiness when the time came. Today, Jeannie says, "It's been a long, five-year journey. I see so much clearer."
With your help, a domestic violence survivor and her child can find freedom again. Please make a gift to support Jeannie & Alex journey to safety and independence.
