The YWCA Hawley House helps women rebuild their lives. At the Hawley House women getting their lives back on track following substance abuse, find a residential environment that fosters responsibility, respect for self and others, and self-sufficiency. The nine-month in-residence program provides a structured environment that includes a 12-step recovery plan, after-care monitoring, counseling and employment assistance. Women in residence at the Hawley House live in a family-type atmosphere and are responsible for daily chores, required meetings and adherence to house rules. Women that graduate from the House continue in after-care but relocate to their own residences.

Our wish is to purchase a van for transporting the residents at Hawley House. Here’s why: This year alone, Hawley House provided 365 days of housing and transportation to and from work and counseling; transportation to 216 AA/NA meetings; and transportation for 154 round trips to receive medical care and medication. Add grocery shopping, educational field trips and church, and you have a lot of miles. It is driven every day, 7 days a week in town.
