EVANSTON NORTH SHORE YOUNG WOMENS CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION
August 9, 2012

I have been on the board of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore for a little over 2 years and am a witness to the wonderful programs and outreach effort supported and driven by this organizations. The YWCA runs a domestic violence shelter for women and provides training for the victims of domestic violence to help them get into or return to the work force, housing, and financial counseling. The YWCA is also heavily involved in education on race relations and ending racial hatred through hosting the annual Race Against Hate as well as community outreach through dialogues, workshops and training out race relations. Finally, there are the aquaitcs programs for adults and children. The costs are kept affordable to allow people from all walks of life to participate in a viaried number of programs.
