The YWL is proud to support the 

2017-2018 Featured Beneficiaries 

Meals on Wheels New Canaan is a five day-a-week, 52 weeks a year nutritious meal delivery service who delivered over 16,000 meals last year to residents of New Canaan whose needs or condition make it difficult for them to provide it for themselves.  Approximately 90% of MOW’s clients are women living independently in New Canaan, which helps them stay in their homes (often the ones they raised their families in or even grew up in themselves!)  We will also be working with MOW this fall to coordinate volunteer drivers, so its a great opportunity to support a wonderful organization right here in our own town.

Connecticut Institute for Refugees and Immigrants (formerly IICONN) provides an array of high quality legal, social, linguistic and educational programming to refugees and immigrants so they can become self-sufficient members of their new community.  We will be raising money for their Survivor Services group, which aims to aid victims of human rights abuses by breaking the cycle of isolation, increasing self-confidence and providing a safe space to disengage from past traumatic experiences.
