YWCA Northeast Indiana celebrates a community that embraces the inherent dignity of all people.

The YWCA invites you to the first event of the year focusing on health care and race on February 16th from 12-1:30 p.m. at the Allen County Public Library, Main Branch Meeting Rooms A & B. We will look at disparities in the healthcare system and how we as a community can make improvements to overcome those, as well as how we can individually ensure quality care for ourselves, our neighbors, and the people we work with. Community partners from health care will be invited. Those interested can visit the YWCA website for more information on our 2023 Diversity Dialogue Series.
