Goodbye to Scott Pinegar, YWCA Health Access Associate Director

As of today, March 1, 2012, BABES Network-YWCA celebrates 7 years as a program of the YWCA. Scott Pinegar played a major role in bringing the BABES program to the YWCA and its Health Access Department. We are really lucky to be part of such an amazing organization and to have our program overseen by such a dedicated, inspiring, smart man! Scott has been with the YWCA for 17 years and we will miss him greatly in our department, but wish him luck in his new position as Program Manager in the YWCA Shelter Plus Care Program.
