“There are a hundred unsung heroes in our community we pass by every day…”

We’d like you to shape our hero movement by submitting your hero and the story of how they impacted your life.

Over the next few months the YWCA Lancaster will be selecting a number of your stories to build our movement.

Submit Your hero

Often, in stories of struggle and resilience, a hero comes to light.

This is Hope’s hero story.

Our hero campaign has shown us the resilience and strength that can be found in our community. Hope’s story is one that is awe-inspiring and one to be shared. Her heroes helped empower her and now she is empowering those around her.

Hope's story

The goal of YWCA Lancaster’s Sexual Assault Prevention and Counseling Center is to facilitate healing and empowerment for those who have experienced sexual trauma.

We were there for Hope and her family and we’re here for you too. You are not alone.
