23 Jun YWCA of North Central Indiana
The YWCA of North Central Indiana is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. YWCA offers a comprehensive Economic Empowerment program for Latina women who have been victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, drug dependency or have suffered from economic hardship and are ready to move forward towards employment. The ECCF provided funding for this program that is designed to help women build self-confidence, self-esteem, skills and acquire tools to live self-sufficient lives without being economically dependent upon an abusive relationship. On Monday, June 16, 24 women graduated from the first cohort.
