“This community is extremely fortunate to have such a strong proactive and dedicated YWCA working to empower women, eliminating racism and promoting peace, justice and dignity for all.  As a former board member and a current social service collaborator, I have witnessed first-hand the great work the YWCA does through their advocacy work on the National and State level as well as their various quality local programs they conduct that empower women of all ages and socioeconomic levels.” – Linda Judah, Executive Director, Social Welfare Board

“At the end of the day, I leave work knowing that I made a difference and that I was part of making a woman or child’s life better.” – Kim (Carroll) Kempf, MA, LPC and YWCA Victim Services Director

“I volunteer with the YWCA because they are passionate about the work they do and you can see the impact in the community.” – Jodi Bloemker, Director of Community Investment, United Way of Greater St. Joseph
