Donate to YWCA Victoria's Tax Appeal
Since 1882, YWCA Victoria has been improving the lives of women and girls. Today, I am calling on you to support an increasing number of vulnerable and at-risk women.
Every day we hear from women over-50 who are at-risk of homelessness for the first time in their lives.
Women like Shirley, who became homeless at age 57 after a marriage break down.
We provided Shirley with accommodation in a YWCA rooming house, along with a 'fresh start' pack of linen, towels, toiletries and a food voucher.
"I arrived at the YWCA rooming house with a bag of clothes and a bread roll from the hostel. When I was given the pack for my room, I cried. It gave me hope that there were people looking out for me."
You can give hope to a woman like Shirley by donating to YWCA Victoria today. Funds raised will help provide 'fresh start' packs like the one we gave Shirley. A small gesture that can have a big impact at a time of stress and anxiety.
We are working hard to address the affordable housing crisis and with your support we can continue to improve the lives of Victorian women in need.
Jan Berriman, CEO, YWCA Victoria
PS. Each year we receive almost 900 applications for YWCA housing from women in need. We need your help to support more women. Please make a donation today.
