YWCA SHOE DRIVE
Did you know that your shoes can shelter women and children that have experienced violence? The YWCA is facilitating a shoe drive to raise funds for women and children in the Mercy Home Shelter. If you have shoes to donate that are gently worn or used, bring them to a drop off site.
DISMANTLING RACISM IN GREAT FALLS FORUM
Please join us for this opportunity to talk to community leaders about dismantling racism and how we can create an avenue for all marginalized people to tell their stories, dreams of the future, needs & issues.
We will also have a link on the YWCA Great falls Facebook, twitter and Instagram.
At this time, white people seeking to be anti-racist can reach out to support friends and colleagues of color, highlight the voices of Black advocates and activists; and educate themselves.
YWCA Great Falls has recently lost crucial federal funding.
Without this money, we are struggling to meet the critical needs of women and children in our community.
Every year we serve hundreds of women and children from seven counties and three tribal reservations who are fleeing domestic violence or coping with the aftermath of sexual assault. This includes urgent needs such as emergency shelter and food at our Mercy Home along with legal, financial, and personal advocacy. We also provide vital counseling and support for those coping with the long-term impact of domestic violence, sexual assault, trauma, PTSD, and more.
