YOUR DOLLARS AT WORK
The YWCA Banff pays attention to a social issue that affects our community.
Stopping domestic violence
People in our community need a wide range of support at different times in their lives and according to their unique needs. The YWCA of Banff offers a wide spectrum of services -
Through these services we build a healthy community, helping to stop domestic violence, providing affordable housing and serving people at critical turning points in their lives.
All funds raised from the Walk A Mile event directly support the YWCA's activities to stop domestic violence in our community.
The Walk A Mile event makes it possible for us to provide women and children fleeing from the psychological and physical violence with counseling, crisis intervention and access to a Women's shelter.
The Walk A Mile event also makes it possible for us to provide violence prevention programs in our community. We offer programs to children in local schools to help them build self-esteem and stop bullying. We also provide men and women with group programs to help build healthy relationships.
All funds raised from the Walk A Mile event help the YWCA support women and children during a critical turning point in their lives.
