YWCA-MC Client stories are both inspiring and informative. Our various life changing programs and dedicated staff helps our clients create and achieve their goals.
Client “E” had become homeless after leaving an unhealthy relationship. YWCA-MC staff referred “E” to other local agencies and resources as well as the Safe Shelter Collaborative and wait lists for different site locations for low-income housing. They conducted intensive case management and provided advocacy and transportation for “E”. She has been working diligently with her case manager to meet identified goals. After attending drive-in briefings at the Housing Authority for the County of Monterey, “E” was able to obtain her “set aside” voucher for an affordable housing unit.
Client “F”: Due to Covid-19 and transitional housing restrictions, Client “F” left her educational program and became homeless. After learning that “F” wanted to earn her diploma, program staff connected her with Open Door Charter, a virtual independent study program. YWCA-MC provided client “F” with a new Chromebook and hot spot for school. They also connected “F” with hygiene items, job placement resources and employment through Rising International.
