"... My 5-year-old has learned more in this short time at the YW this summer than she has her whole time at the pre-school. She’s counting better, speaking better, has more confidence and a renewed enthusiasm for school. The difference is night and day. Her teachers, Ms. Tessa and Señora Rosa are the best she’s ever had. They’re firm but patient, stern yet loving. My Peyton cannot wait until she goes to school and she cannot wait to tell me about her day when I pick her up. I thank God for that staff there at the YWCA. Not to mention that we have been attempting to potty-train my 2y/o for a few months now, but we couldn’t get the job done until the staff got onboard with us. I happy to say she was potty trained in less than a week. The staff was very collaborative with her mom and me. Lastly, and most importantly, the biggest concerns we had for our children attending the summer program was safety. The YWCA staff takes COVID precautions very seriously. They keep the class sizes small, and my kids and I are screened daily with a questionnaire and temperature checks. The staff also wears personal protective equipment from head to toe. If there is as so much as a hiccup from another child or staff member, the YWCA’s staff informs all the parents immediately. My girl and I could not feel any more secure..." - Pedro B.
"The YWCA Princeton has played such an important role in my life, as I have been a member of their Breast Cancer Resource Center for quite some time. The programs offered, such as writing classes, their Healing Arts and Eat Better Live Better and the emotional support that is given before, during after and well beyond our diagnosis and treatments are over are not only helpful, but I’ve founded to be vital to my healing and recovery. From private wig fittings, to information on financial resources, to help with transportation to and from treatments for those who need assistance, there is just so much that is offered to anyone and everyone from all walks of life. I take part in two different support groups offered by the BCRC and I have met so many amazing people who have helped me in so many ways. I can’t say enough good things about the BCRC!! I am so happy that I found them!! Thank you YWCA Princeton!!" - Michele
