Review for YWCA Rock County, Janesville, WI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My first encounter with the YWCA was as a client. My daughters and I stayed at the women's shelter when leaving a DV relationship. They counseled and supported me, giving me back my confidence and self-esteem. After several years of healing, I returned as a volunteer to help other women see there is a way out. Eventually I served on the Board of Directors trying in another way to give back all that the YWCA staff had given me. The YWCA Rock County empowered me to be a strong independent woman unafraid to stand up and use my voice to promote change!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Through my own personal crisis, healing and escape from domestic violence. And again as a Volunteer and Board Member as I assisted and watched other women mentored and encouraged through their many programs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the change in people.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

remarkable! Compassionate, caring and very talented individuals.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make a big difference in the lives of many here in Rock County.
