New – April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Missouri KidsFirst has encouraged the YWCA to place blue pinwheels or flags for all the children served by our organization. This helps show our commitment to promoting the health and well-being of every child in our community.
The YWCA served 502 children in 2016 – See below to view 502 blue flags in front of our building. St. Joe Sign generously donated the sign that you see with all the flags. Thank you, St. Joe Sign! To everyone who works with the children and serves the children in our community – well done!
