“The YWCA helped me and my family secure housing at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without their support, my two young daughters and I would still be living in our car! Their team is so amazing. Thank you so much and big hugs!” —Mom served through YWCA of Greater Portland's Domestic Violence Services
