Erica’s Story

Five years ago, Erica turned to the YWCA for safety while ending a violent relationship.

Now, she’s sharing her story to inspire others to support the services that helped her get her life back.

Our Counselling programs are partially supported by donor generosity. As government and other agency funding is decreasing the demand for our services are increasing. To find out more about how you can bridge this gap and help save and change the lives of countless women and children in our communities, please contact us.
