Children Thrive at YWCA!

“My daughter is so excited to start her day, she ignores me from the minute she gets here in the morning. Our rides home in the afternoon are filled with stories about her friends, details of craft projects, long walks, swimming and descriptions of lunch (usually including the word delicious). This is a place where she feels safe and loved. I’m more grateful than I can say for the people who treat my daughter with such care, and for a place where she can spend such memorable summers.”

– Susan, YWCA Summer Camp Parent
