Glimmer of Hope 2020
DUBUQUE COMMUNITY YMCA/YWCA 15th ANNUAL GLIMMER OF HOPE
Join us this year for the WEEK of GLIMMER: October 1 – 8, 2020
All proceeds go to supporting our Victim Services Shelter – an eight-room, 20-bed shelter for those who are fleeing a life of domestic violence, human sex trafficking, or sexual assault.
For some, it takes months, and for others, it takes years to reach out for help when leaving a domestic violence, human sex trafficking, or sexual assault situation. From the moment a client and their children step foot in our shelter they are shown nothing but love, respect, and dignity. Though the journey is tough, our staff ensure they find the best pathway out of their situation, feeling empowered and excited about new life opportunities. Join us in helping more people find their pathway to empowerment.
- Candlelight Vigil: Thursday, October 1, 2020 @ 6:30PM in Washington Park
Its a night about empowering those who have lived or are currently living a life of violence. At our Candlelight Vigil you will hear from a survivor of Domestic Violence, Rachel. A story about how childhood trauma translates into self-hate that results in allowing abuse, how she broke free from the lies, and is now living a life free from violence. You will also learn more about our Victim Services Shelter and how you can make a difference in our community.
- Ask the Experts: Tuesday, October 6, 2020 @6:30 PM at the Dubuque Y and on Facebook Live
