The deep impact of COVID-19 to our community can be felt as we stretch critical resources in ways we had never imagined possible. And while the COVID-19 situation shifts from day to day, so do the needs of our community.
At YWCA Hamilton, we are committed to bringing exceptional service and care to our clients and residents, which means our team continues to work tirelessly around the clock to ensure the well-being of the most vulnerable populations in our community.
But in encouraging self-isolation and distancing amongst the 65 residents who call YWCA Hamilton home, and women who are homeless who we are supporting in temporary hotel spaces provided by the City of Hamilton, one harsh reality becomes clear: isolation and hunger are huge threats to safety and well-being. With limited access to food and activities, we simply need supplies to keep those who rely on us active, engaged and fed while isolating in their rooms.
Please consider making a donation to ensure we can respond to the increased needs of women and families accessing our essential services.
These women and families need us now more than ever.
