While the tragic COVID-19 pandemic is new, YWCA is no stranger to surviving nation-wide hardships. YWCA has been serving women and families in South Florida for 100 years. Through it all, our team has remained committed to combating food insecurity, job loss, mental health, and academic remediation needs for women, girls, and people of color in our backyard – it’s in our DNA.
Despite the current climate, we are staying vigilant to serve our most vulnerable communities on the front lines, including single mothers, uninsured families, and children at risk of falling behind in school.
In just seven weeks, we are:
- Providing shelf-safe weekend meals and distributing diapers to those in need.
- Working tirelessly with over 700 families in our programs for virtual Early Childhood Education, Academic and Economic support, and Family Wellness.
- Providing personal academic support through activities, curriculum, parental guidance, and free tutoring
- Maintaining relationships with over 2,300 personal contacts per week for wellness checks and to connect with services.
Now more than ever, our community needs heroes to help bridge gaps.
Our YWCA South Florida Board Members Caroline Iovino, Kelly-Ann Cartwright, Adriene McCoy, Tracey Tynes, and Glenn Davis have generously contributed to match up to $10,000 in donations for Giving Tuesday Now, coming up on Tuesday, May 5th.
Giving Tuesday Now is a day dedicated to inspiring generosity and building a better world. In honor of that spirit, we ask you to help us reach our goal of $15,000 by donating to or fundraising for YWCA South Florida.
