Heather's Message

A Message From YWCA CEO Heather Finlay

Welcome to the YWCA of San Diego County’s new website. I invite you take a few minutes to review the information on the YWCA programs that empower women, children, and families to break the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness and achieve self sufficiency. We provide comprehensive services that include safe housing, counseling, legal assistance, employment support, financial literacy training, and supportive children’s programs. Each day, over 50 frightened individuals come to the YWCA seeking a safe place where they can feel secure and get the support that they need to heal and rebuild their lives. These individuals, mostly women and children, are victims of their circumstances, and no one deserves to be marginalized or abused. If you need help, please call us. We hope that you will consider supporting an organization that saves lives everyday. Even $10 will make a big difference. San Diego families rely on us and we are relying on you.
