Y’s Newest Partnership Benefits A Woman’s Place
Central Bucks Family YMCA will provide free babysitting services to clients of A Woman’s Place. The program is designed to provide mothers who have been victims of domestic violence the opportunity to receive free nurturing childcare services during programming hours hosted by A Woman’s Place.
While utilizing child care, mothers in the program will attend educational classes, including a seminar on finances and career development.
Ann T. Ciliberto, director of the Empowerment Project at A Woman’s Place recently shared a quote from a future participant in the program: “I never thought I could handle facing some of these issues (financial and emotional) but thanks to everyone helping, I am able to do that!”
“Our mission is to improve the quality of community life. Knowing that the program will help so many women is encouraging,” said Zane Moore, President/CEO at Central Bucks Family YMCA. “We’re proud to continue our collaboration with A Woman’s Place in such a meaningful way.”
The program is the most recent of the Ys ongoing partnership with A Woman’s Place, started in 2014 with the Empower U program for teen girls which aims to enhance personal confidence through physical activity, healthy relationships and educational activities.
The Y continues to seek ways to serve the community with their own community outreach programs like THRIVE cancer wellness, Veterans wellness, and 7th grade memberships, as well as partnership programs Central Bucks School District, Bucks County Police, Travis Manion Foundation and countless others.
