Your gift directly supports young children and families in Palm Beach County.
Michael is only 2 years old and is already struggling with more adversity than most of us endure in a lifetime. He has ulcerative colitis, anemia, chronic pain, food allergies, and speech limitations. Michael has been in and out of the hospital for the past year, often confined to a hospital bed for weeks at a time. Michael’s 11-month old brother, Ryan, also struggles with medical conditions, including needing emergency brain surgery when he was only a few months old.
Their parents have done their best. However, they struggled with homelessness, unable to find a shelter suitable to meet the medical needs of Micheal and Ryan. As a result, Michael and Ryan have been placed in foster care.
Michael, Ryan, and their parents need therapeutic support. Your gift ensures that families like Michael's get the support they need to cope and heal...from medical trauma, separation from family members, and homelessness.

You Make Our Work Possible
Thank you. Your gift helps support critical care for young children in our community.
For example, our Childcare and Community Social-Emotional Wellness (CCSEW) Program provides prevention and early intervention services in shelters and local childcare centers for the most vulnerable young children in our community. This program has been a core part of our mission since being founded in 1999. We are currently co-located in several centers, including both YWCA Child Development Centers (West Palm and Royal Palm Beach), the Appleseed Preschool and Nursery, Opportunity Early Childhood Education and Family Center, and Faith Lutheran Preschool.
