BABES is a place where women can share personal stories, feel safe to express emotions, and be heard in an atmosphere of acceptance, understanding, and encouragement.
If I’m angry, I can feel angry. If I need a shoulder to cry on, I’ve got one at BABES. It’s a place where we support each other.
I love helping other people; and by doing so, I strengthen and empower myself. Thank you BABES for giving me a voice!
Dear BABES supporter,
Your support of BABES Network – YWCA means a lot to women like Serena. She was still healing from breast cancer and a double mastectomy when she found out she was HIV positive.
Now Serena is facing her ‘new normal’ with the same courage and determination that she battled cancer. Thanks to you, she doesn’t have to face HIV alone.
Positive women still need nurturing, encouragement, intimacy, and consolation, especially during difficult times. The BABES support group brings together women in the same situation, and for me, they help fill a void. My BABES are my biggest cheerleaders.
BABES is the only program of its kind in our community, ensuring that women living with HIV and their families are connected to a strong network of friends, advocates, and healthcare providers.
December 1st is World AIDS Day. We hope you’ll commemorate this day with us by wearing a red ribbon, and supporting BABES like Serena.
Your gift of $25 or more can help turn one woman’s despair into resolve. Your support can remind a woman living with HIV that she can still fall in love, have a meaningful career, create lasting friendships, and live a full life.
Thank you for keeping BABES in your thoughts, today and always.
