MISSION UPDATE: April 2019

E-Newsletter Header
It's Clay Bowl Season!
YWCA staff and volunteers are busy getting ready for Clay Bowl Giving Project on Thursday, April 18. Clay Bowl Giving Project is an annual fundraiser for YWCA's Domestic Violence Intervention & Prevention Program featuring hundreds of hand-made glazed clay bowls created by local potters and members of the Greater Lafayette Clay Guild. YWCA DVIPP facilitates support groups, emergency shelter, community education programs, children's groups, legal advocacy and more. We are able to provide these services at no cost to those who need them in part thanks to events like Clay Bowl and participation of people like you.
