Rita Ryder, PRESIDENT OF STRATEGIC INITIATIVES, YWCA
Our sculpture represents the day-to-day work of the YWCA, providing hope and opportunity to women and families. Our ceramic hands represent our entire, diverse community joining together to help women and families overcome critical issues that undermine their lives: homelessness, poverty, domestic violence and unemployment.
Working together, we move women and families forward—breaking the cycle of poverty and hopelessness, and improving the quality of their lives.
