Pandemic Health Navigator Program

YWCA Elgin has received a grant to help COVID-impacted community members. This COVID-19 Pandemic Health Navigator Program (PHNP) integrates community health centers, community-based organizations, and our public health partners to coordinate resources for our most vulnerable populations impacted by COVID-19.  The grant is from the Illinois Public Health Association (IPHA), in partnership with the Illinois Primary Health Care Association (IPHCA) and funded by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

#STOPASIANHATE: YWCA Stands in Solidarity with AAPI Communities
At YWCA, we are unwavering in our demand for justice and in our commitment to creating a world in which all women, girls, and people of color can thrive. This is why we are devastated by the ongoing violence against Asian Americans that has ravaged our country during such a trying time, and we send our condolences to the lives lost in Georgia last week. Additionally, the mass shooting in Colorado reminded us of the horrors of hate that often feeds into gun violence. Two times in one week, our nation was ravaged by mass shootings, which make it clear that the tragic incidents of gun violence and hateful domestic terrorism have plagued our country for far too long.
These events have invigorated YWCA’s commitment to addressing structural inequality and racism across all communities of color, deepening our work to advocate for equity and justice. All Americans, especially people of color, should feel safe in spas, grocery stores, schools, churches, and in their own communities. We have and will continue to do this work; demanding a safe world of equity and human decency until injustice is rooted out until institutions are transformed, and until justice just is.
