As a social justice organization, YWCA Evanston/North Shore offers help and healing to thousands who are affected by violence, racism, and economic insecurity. We are a lifeline to people in need.
Equally important is our work centered on prevention.
Much of what we do involves drilling deeper into tough issues, examining the root causes, and finding creative, expansive solutions.
From our work with men and boys focused on healthy masculinity, to our violence prevention programs for young people, to our aquatics program that opens its doors widely so all children can be safe in the water, we work to effect change through preventive measures.
Thank you for your support and engagement in this innovative, important work. Happy summer!
