Increasing numbers of women and children in Missoula are experiencing or witnessing violence in their homes. Hundreds of individuals and families are also living in inadequate or substandard housing, while some have no homes at all. YWCA Missoula believes that everyone has the right to a life free of violence and that every person is entitled to safe and decent housing. We are determined to create a community where all people, regardless of gender or race, have opportunities for growth, leadership and power.
This year, YWCA Missoula celebrates 100 years responding to the emerging issues facing women in the community. It is through this rich history filled with compassion and dedication to families in Missoula that we are able to continue our mission eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people in our community.
The Seventeenth Annual Women’s Law Caucus Silent Auction will be held Friday, March 7 from 6- 9 p.m. at the Missoula Community Theatre, 200 N. Adams, Missoula . The event will include live entertainment and complimentary beverages and hors d’ oeuvres will be served. Proceeds benefit YWCA Missoula’s Pathways Domestic and Sexual Violence Services. Admission is free and open to the public.
