Meeting Critical Needs at a Critical Time – Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow

Since the beginning, YWCA has been there for our community. For all of us, this is a time of tremendous uncertainty and it will require everyone to come together to protect and meet the needs of the Lower Cape Fear.  

In times of crisis, vulnerable communities suffer. In 1918, YWCA was on the front line of the Spanish Flu pandemic, setting up emergency hospital wards in our facility. Today, we are providing child care for essential workers, delivering meals and groceries to families in our Grandparent Support Network, and assisting women and mothers who have faced job cut-backs, low wages, or loss of housing.

YWCA provides critical, live-saving needs to the most vulnerable populations every day, and we continue to do that work during the novel coronavirus crisis. But we can’t do it alone.
