Helping families escape domestic violence

On behalf of the board of directors and staff, I would like to express our sincerest gratitude to Erin Jennings for her exemplary newspaper article regarding the YWCA ALIVE Holiday Adopt-A-Family Project that was featured in the Dec. 16 edition (“ALIVE Shelter helps victims break the domestic violence cycle,” page 2, Kitsap Week).

You highlighted the YWCA’s work in such a tremendous and far-reaching manner. We have already received several calls from community members wanting to make the holidays brighter for families served by the YWCA.

As the YWCA pauses to reflect on its work in 2011, it gives us great pride in realizing that we have assisted so many families with moving beyond domestic violence — with opportunities and hope.

You have played a part in making this possible. Because of the support of the Kitsap News Group and you, the YWCA of Kitsap County will begin 2012 with our Mission and Vision as strong as ever.

Again, thank you so very much.

Linda K. Joyce
Executive director
YWCA of Kitsap County
