"After I left my husband because of domestic violence, I didn't have anywhere to go until I found the YWCA's Supportive Housing Program. We've spent five months here and I can't tell you what a difference it has made in our lives. For the first time in my life I am going to school and doing well, plus I have a part-time job. My case manager helps me with budgeting and I am actually saving money! They help my kids, too. My son was embarrassed about our situation at first. A lot of kids might feel that way. But there's nothing to be ashamed of. Everybody needs a hand sometimes and the YWCA helped us get back on our feet. Now we don't have to worry about where to sleep at night and how we're going to find something to eat. I don't know here we'd be without the YWCA - I'm so thankful they have a program like this."
