Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Walk a Mile Fundraiser – Saturday, Oct 28, 2023
For more than 40 years, the YWCA of Hawai`i Island has provided sexual assault support services for victims and survivors – women, men, girls, and boys ranging from age ninety to less than a year old. Our free, island-wide services include a 24-Hour Sexual Assault Crisis Hotline (808) 935-0677, a Medical Forensic Exam Program and counseling support for the survivor and family members. Last year alone, we responded to more than 2,150 crisis and support calls from or on behalf of victims of sexual violence.
Your support will make it possible to continue to offer these services and programs to the victims, survivors, and family members. Ours is the only resource available to them on Hawai‘i Island.
