Mazy Brown is a case manager at Edmonds Community College, she serves and supports students who haven’t received their high school diploma and want to attend college. Her own experience of life transformation and the help she received from her family, neighbors, and YWCA’s Pathways for Women in Lynnwood, made her believe everyone deserves a second chance.
Christmas is the giving season, a perfect time to spread kindness and support those in our community who are in need. By participating in the YWCA Adopt-A-Family program you match with a local family and contribute by purchasing gifts for the kids and grocery gift cards for their parents.
