you are the change!

This holiday season, we asked you to be the change in the lives of the most vulnerable members of our community. You responded with benevolence and fever. Over 32 area businesses and hundreds of individuals contributed to our gift tag program, bringing in loads of gifts for the underprivileged participants in our programs. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide gifts for 617 individuals, 440 of which were children. Over $51,000 has been donated thus far during our holiday campaign, and there’s still time to donate before January 15th.

Your gifts and donations change lives and transform the culture of Clark County. When individuals utilize our services, many of them experience something they’ve never felt before: empowerment. Through ywca clark county, those who have felt oppressed become empowered to pursue life goals; empowered to utilize legal recourse; empowered to be an ally to others; and empowered to be the change. As they grow, our community grows, but this would never happen without the hope and encouragement provided by community members like you.

On behalf of the people we serve, and the staff who work tirelessly to serve them, thank you for your contributions. You are the change!
