The YWCA largest contract award, $995,808 for emergency shelter, was the largest single contract awarded. The nonprofit was awarded five contracts, with a total annual amount of approximately $2 million, to provide services to survivors of domestic and sexual abuse, ranging from rape crisis to supervised visitation services.
"We are very grateful," said Elizabeth G. Dineen, the YWCA's executive director.
"Thanks to these significant financial awards, the YWCA will continue to provide its core services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault."
Besides its contract for emergency shelter, the YWCA was awarded $382,104 for rape crisis services; $364,572 for general community-based domestic violence services; $212,616 for supervised visitation services; and $98,520 for children exposed to domestic violence.
