YWCA St. Paul’s request to the Legislature for $2.3 million to help repair, restore, and maintain our buildings was approved! This is a critically needed investment in housing for homeless families, ensuring they continue to have safe, accessible, sustainable homes for years to come.
Thank you to everyone who called, wrote a letter to, emailed, or met with their Legislators. It was the efforts of many that led this incredible investment to happen.
A special thank you to Senator Sandy Pappas, Senator Erin Murphy, Representative Kaohly Her, Representative Samakab Hussein, and so many others that helped pass the bill.
YWCA St. Paul is grateful for the hard work and tireless efforts of many, many dedicated volunteers who met with their legislatures, spent hours at the Capitol, and advocated for this much needed funding. We coudn’t have done it without you!
