Vital Funding at Risk!

VOCA is at the center of YWCA Sonoma County’s response to supporting victims of domestic violence and these cuts will directly impact our programs.

VOCA funding is critical to our organization which provides counseling, housing services, crisis response, and legal services along with a range of other responses to address trauma and support healing.

Let your voice be heard!
