Safe Nights

When women and their children are able to escape violence and spend the night in a warm, secure place, something wonderful happens: they sleep without fear.

And when this same security and support continues to exist, as it does around the clock at YWCA Crossroads Shelter, women and their children can begin to heal.

A safe night can save a woman or child’s life, and it can most certainly change it!

By providing everything they’ll need, one night at a time, together we can help women and their children face and overcome the immense challenge of rebuilding their lives after fleeing violence and abuse.
