The YWCA learned so much about the triumphs this woman had been through. She was not perfect, but she was honest about those imperfections. This woman served as “grandma” to all the residents living in the YWCA shelter, and tried to offer advice and wisdom to many younger women.
Finally, after a long wait here in North Dakota, an apartment came through for her and her grandchild. The YWCA was able to help her with clothing, all the necessities, and help filling out assistance applications, so that her and her grandchild would have the very best possible chance at success. The YWCA was also able to help pay for her deposit and some rent to get her started, and she is now out on her own……grandchild in tow. This woman is a true story of perseverance, resiliency, and has the belief that if she does the right things, good things will happen. If you are interested in this woman’s full story, she has agreed to share it at the YWCA Women of Distinction Banquet - tickets available here. It will be a story of inspiration and change you won’t want to miss it!
