We interviewed Mel Hammack, Coordinator of YWCA Hope House and Debra James, GNO Committee member.
Mel discussed the importance of the Resolve Family Abuse Program. The program offers a 24/7 shelter, a crisis hotline and emergency intervention for victims of domestic violence. They provide services for the entire family in Kanawha, Clay and Boone counties, YWCA Resolve also offers case management, court advocacy, counseling, support groups, safety planning, monitored parent-child visitation/exchange, programs for children, and teen dating safety. Licensed by the West Virginia Family Protection Services Board, their mission is to eliminate domestic violence through leadership, education, empowerment and community collaboration.
The number to call for a confidential conversation is 304-340-3549.
To help fund the mission of the Family Resolve Program, the YWCA holds their biggest event of the year, this year it is Girls Night In.
Debra discussed the changes to this years event.
The world is looking a little different these days, and they realized quickly that this year’s GNO event would have to follow suit to ensure the safety of our community. While COVID-19 has forced them to make the difficult decision of cancelling an in-person event this year, they are still determined to unite with you virtually in celebrating Our Power, Our Passion, and Our Purpose in raising awareness and funds to help victims of domestic violence.
So, they ARE SO EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE their FIRST-EVER, WEEK-LONG VIRTUAL EVENT CAMPAIGN!
