The YWCA West Central Michigan hosts a number of special events each year to highlight our mission, honor the extraordinary efforts of women within our community, and educate our community on the critical issues affecting women and families today. The YWCA is also the grateful beneficiary of several community fundraisers. The revenue and awareness provided through all these events directly supports the work of the YWCA and most importantly those we serve.
