YWCA of Minot North Dakota
April 13, 2011
The Minot YWCA is fulfilling a need in our region of North Dakota that is not being met by any other organization: The Minot YWCA's Florence Anderson Center of Hope is the only shelter for chronically homeless women in the area, providing small apartments for single women and their children. The YWCA also helps the women with childcare and job searches, and generally helps them get back on their feet. The shelter also has rooms to house women on an emergency basis (domestic violence)
The Minot YWCA also operates an excellent childcare facility (Early Learning Center) to help fill a great need for childcare in the city of Minot, even though it is a struggle to maintain financial support of the center.

I would try to do some very targeted fund-raising. I think people are more easily persuaded to give to a very specific cause that they care about.
Board Member & I am a new board member of the YW and are starting to get more involved.
