She Rises

The Clinton YWCA was founded in 1915 by women to serve women and fight for equality and social justice. This third year of funding from IWF will be used to implement a new suite of programs – She Rises – that aim at tackling barriers to success that at-risk women and young girls face in their community. New programs include one-on-one and group mentoring and educational programs focused on building resiliency, while linking women and girls with existing programs and resources they might need such as homelessness and rehousing, job mentoring and shadowing, employment counseling and preparation, childcare, and wellness.
