The YWRC is excited to receive funding from the Crime Victim Assistance Division's New Initiatives grant program, making it possible to hire an additional full time therapist. This therapist will offer creative individual and small group therapy to girls and young women who have experienced primary or secondary interpersonal violence.
We look forward to working together with community organizations and local coalition groups to build upon available resources for young women when they need it most. Learn more.
