My friend, colleague, and fellow YWCA board member Jennifer Smith and I lost a cherished team member to domestic violence this year. Her death came as a complete shock as she appeared to be in a happy and healthy relationship. She will always remain in our hearts and the hearts of those whose lives she touched. We dedicate this YWCA fund raising initiative to her and all women who have suffered trauma in darkness. Please consider a gift to support the well-being of women and their families during this "Stronger Together" YWCA campaign.
