CHALLENGE #15-2022

Crisis Center of South Suburbia

Tinley Park, Illinois

"YWCA is on a mission."  We are on a mission to be a place for women and children to turn as they escape violence, homelessness, and crisis. We are on a mission to provide safety, warmth, and hope to those who need it most. We are on a mission to walk alongside each woman, support her as she heals, and remind her of her incredible worth. We are on a mission to empower her to transform her life. We are on a mission to watch her triumph as she moves from fear to freedom, breaking the cycles of poverty and violence and creating a better life for herself and her family."
