Week Without Violence is part of a global movement with YWCAs across the country and around the world to end violence against women and girls. At YWCA, we know that not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally and that some victims go unrecognized altogether. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence. Join us from October 14 to 18 as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more with a common goal in mind: together, we can end gender-based violence.

October is nationally recognized as Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention Month. A time to celebrate survivors, honor those who have lost their lives due to domestic abuse , raise awareness, and confirm our commitment to preventing intimate partner violence in our community. Contact us to learn more about how the YWCA of Palm County is celebrating Domestic Violence Awareness month by calling 561-640-0050.

The CEO's of Palm Beach County Food Bank and YWCA of Palm Beach County met for lunch and what resulted was a new partnership to ensure that NO ONE faces hunger. Harmony House (the YWCA's 72-bed shelter), feeds more than 500 women and children each year who are confronting domestic abuse and facing hunger and homelessness. The Food Bank provides food to those facing food insufficiency. Within one week, Palm Beach County Food Bank was providing pounds of non-perishable food for the women and children in shelter and will continue to do so for as long as we both exist. Together, our organizations are moving the needle in alleviating hunger in our community!
