Mary Kay Foundation Gives Grant to YWCA

In recognition of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, which is October, the Mary Kay Foundation awarded a $20,000 grant to the YWCA Evanston/North Shore in support of its domestic violence services.

YWCA Evanston/North Shore  is one of 150 domestic violence organizations across the United States, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam receiving grants from The Mary Kay Foundation, which is providing a total of $3 million to such groups.

YWCA will use the grant funding to support its 32-bed domestic violence shelter for survivors and their children. Shelter services include a 24-hour crisis line – 847-864-8784 – individual, family, and group counseling, legal advocacy, financial empowerment, health education, and nutrition and cooking classes.

“We are incredibly grateful for support from The Mary Kay Foundation and its continued commitment to breaking the cycle of domestic violence,” said Karen Singer, president and CEO of YWCA Evanston/North Shore. “We can put this money to work right away to provide tangible help to women and give them hope for the future.”
