– Bonnie, YWCA Resident.
Looking to the future we are hopeful for new opportunities to expand and grow current programs for Binghamton to serve and care about women for another 125 years. As the community redefines itself in these tough economic times, the relevance needs to continue. The YWCA serves as links to both the past and the future, not just for women, and not just for Binghamton, but for all citizens of the Southern Tier.
ASK YOURSELF what part can you play as we continue to open doors of
hope and opportunity in Binghamton? How can we lift up women, children,
and families to move beyond their limitations and really achieve something
more in life? Let’s move forward… TOGETHER.
– a scholarship program to help provide early childhood education and housing for low-income women who do not meet subsidy criteria. Through an application process, women can apply to take advantage of the many programs that the YWCA has to offer.
– FREE transportation services provided for women to doctor and treatment appointments for any medical needs, specifically targeting women in rural areas who face transportation as a barrier to their health.
– 10 off-site housing units for families, which includes women with more than one child and/or spouse, so that families could remain together while benefiting from services such as case management and vocational counseling that the YWCA provides.
– 10 off-site affordable housing units for women transitioning out of the supportive housing services at the YWCA. Targeted to helping women find safe, affordable housing while re-entering the community as a productive citizen.
