The Yakima YWCA will be given an $11,000 grant from the Yakima Valley Community Foundation.  YWCA Executive Director Erin Black said the money will be used to help
victims and families affected by domestic violence and homelessness. Last year alone the YWCA helped more than four thousand individuals impacted by violence and homelessness.

Specifically funds will be used to implement the Y’s connected community project to support capacity building, awareness and education surrounding family violence and homelessness in Yakima County.  Black says “the grant will also support the Family Self-Sufficiency program, which is designed to provide tangible options and resources to overcome to self-determination.”

The Yakima Valley Community Foundation was established in 2004 and has assets close to $54 million.  Yakima Valley Community Foundation is made up of more than 59 separate charitable funds, which have been established by donors either for the general benefit of the community of for special purposes.
