A Message of Thanks
A huge thank you to everyone who helped to make the 2019 YWCA Keep A Roof Over Their Heads Campaign a success! With your help we are Keeping A Roof Over the Heads of those who need it most. Thank you for helping us to offer safe and affordable housing to women, men and youth in our community.
Our model “Home of Hope” was on display at the St. Thomas Home Show as well as many other prominent locations in the city. Thank you to everyone who became a Campaign Sponsor, purchased a Brick or a Shingle, or made a donation.
This year we raised a total of $32,670 for supportive housing.
We continue to open up new homes, because the need for affordable housing is an urgent issue. Last summer the YWCA opened Horizon House, an additional home for young girls, and also Unity House, an additional home for young boys. These are in addition to the Women’s Residence, Second Story housing for men, Harmony House for young women, and Fairwinds for young men.
