Help save the YWCA of Orange County

COVID-19 has affected us all. The YWCA has been in existence for almost 100 years serving North Orange County and now all of Orange County. Before COVID-19, by mid March, we had screened about 400 women for breast cancer. From those, some were diagnosed and referred for further testing and treatment. Unfortunately, we are not able to do this now, one of our funders withdrew a large amount of funding towards this program. That meant cutting staff hours; it could possibly mean lay offs and closing the office in Fullerton. Please help save the YWCA. ANY amount adds up and counts. Moving forward, in addition to providing breast cancer screenings in 52 neighborhoods throughout Orange County, we want to continue providing the services we have been providing at YWCA for almost 100 years like prom dresses for young women who can't afford one; job development services for youth through our Y.E.S. Office in Anaheim; scholarships for women returning to college, and coding for girls. Please help save the YWCA. Thank you for your support.
