Funds raised at this event were to support the construction and outfitting of the new YWCA Play Therapy Studio. The program is an addition tothe YWCA’s Counseling Department and is intended for their youngest friends who have been affected by domestic violence, which may mean being abused themselves within the home. Children ages 3 and up will be served through this program and the YWCA anticipates at least 60 children being supported with licensed therapy in the first year.

$1700 was raised the evening of the event and this was done through contributions for specific therapeutic toys being displayed at the event. Additionally, guests and vendors at the event made donations to support the construction costs of the space.

The YWCA anticipates beginning construction in July with services commencing in August.

The YWCA is excited to add this incredible resource to the continuum of care for survivors which includes Anne Arundel County's only Domestic Violence Safe House Shelter, 24-Hour Crisis Hotlines, Licensed Cognitive Therapy, Licensed Art Therapy, Legal Representation, Abuser Intervention Training, Sex Trafficking Intervention, Community Education and Outreach. Though these services, the YWCA serves 10,000 survivors annually.
