Open Your Heart provided the YWCA Duluth with funding toward upgrading the security system of their Young Mothers Housing Program and providing immediate needs like identification, housing application fees, transportation, and other necessities of residents.
The mission of YWCA Duluth is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Their supportive housing program provides young mothers ages 16-21 a safe place to live and supportive services for approximately 12 to 16 months. Their goal is to stabilize young moms and put them on the path to self-sufficiency.
Funding from Open Your Heart will specifically impact the stability and safety of residents of the Young Mothers Program by offering them the safety of a secure facility and other items that improve their stability and chance of success in life.
Thank you, YWCA Duluth, for all you do!
