Planned Parenthood Statement
from YWCA USA

At YWCA USA, we believe that access to healthcare is imperative for women’s empowerment. That’s why we stand with Planned Parenthood, a vital reproductive health organization, that shares our commitment to health and wellness for women and girls across the nation. We oppose any Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood or limit their ability to provide reproductive healthcare services. Everyone deserves quality, affordable healthcare.

Don’t Forget This Summer!

To most, summer means vacations and adventures, but for our Shelter residents it presents a unique set of challenges. Kids are out of school and need more time, food and activities than during the school year. The YWCA provides as much assistance as possible but we need help from friends like you. By donating to our Emergency Family Shelter, we can provide bus passes to get to the park or the library, purchase outdoor toys such as sidewalk chalk and balls, or shoes which wear out much faster over the summer. Why not share some summer joy today? Visit our web page for more information: ywcagsonc.org/services/family-shelter
