Here’s How to Help

Financial Support

Your financial gift makes sure safety and services are available when they are needed most.

Every survivor’s story is unique but they all come to the YWCA Yakima for the same thing – safety and support.  The need for our facility continues to increase.  In 2015, YWCA Yakima helped 6,349 individuals impacted by domestic violence.  In 2016, YWCA Yakima helped 6,440 individuals impacted by domestic violence.  In 2017, YWCA Yakima helped 6,627 individuals impacted by domestic violence.

Your financial support provides a place where women and their children can come to escape from violence.  Please give the gift of “home” and independence to women and children.  Your gift of shelter and stability will have a long-lasting impact on the lives of the most vulnerable in your community.  Your gift will give hope.

“The gratitude I feel in my heart is overwhelming.  I feel like a new person and I have hope and direction in my life today.  The YWCA and staff have helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life.  I am a success story because of the program and the encouragement that I have received through the YWCA.  I am no longer a victim and I am worth it!”
