Everyone deserves a warm and safe bed. She needs your help to make sure they have one tonight.

YWCA has an urgent need to replace the Shelter heating system. The system has heated the Shelter continuously since it opened in 2004 and has kept over 16,000 women and children warm.

On Giving Hearts Day, February 11, we are asking for your help to replace our heating system and provide shelter for families in need. Donations will be matched by Premier Partner Sammons Financial Group and other generous donors.

Your gift will help women like Michelle who made the courageous decision to stop the abuse and change her life. experience what happens next.

Mark you calendar for February 11 to Warm a Heart and Change her Life. Visit impactgiveback.org to make your gift.

The YWCA operates the largest Emergency Shelter for women and children in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota and provides safe and affordable, short and long term supportive housing options for low-income women. A unique empowerment approach and comprehensive programs designed to break the cycles of poverty and violence for women and their families make the YWCA shelter the only facility of its kind in the region. In addition to safe shelter and supportive housing, programs include: children’s services, education and employment programming, a food pantry, racial justice advocacy, and a nationally accredited public childcare center, A Child’s World.
