This month’s issue focuses on the importance of empowerment through education. Featured in this issue is our Community Education program which recognizes two outstanding educators, Cristina Jimenez and Kristen Monnier.
We also want to thank Professor Patricia Henton and her remarkable class from Huntington University for their volunteer efforts. Supporters of the YWCA help us deliver our services to individuals and organizations throughout our six-county footprint. Simply put: we couldn’t do it without our supporters! It takes a village.
Additionally, our featured empowering leader this month is Alice Jordan-Miles with Purdue Fort Wayne. Learn how she has influenced hundreds of young minds and has saved lives through her suicide prevention efforts!
Please join me in offering kudos to the thirteen women who graduated from our Hope & Harriet program, the YWCA’s addiction recovery program. These women participated in our Celebration of Success event this past Monday, March 9th. Read more about our 50 bed addiction recovery residential program by clicking this link.
