For my graduate project I was lucky enough to write the 100 year history of a wonderful local non-profit in Boise. The Women’s and Children’s Alliance, formerly the Young Women’s Christian Association, works to prevent and educate the public about domestic and sexual abuse.  The YWCA began as a safe refuge for women coming to the city for employment and throughout its history it has provided a wide variety of services to the community, including helping run tuition-free kindergartens, the Rape Crisis Alliance, and entertainment for local teens and local airmen.
