For over 25 years, the YWCA Cambridge Family Shelter has been a safe haven for homeless women and their children. The Shelter, shown in the accompanying photo, is a large, 100+ year-old house that looks its age. The inside and the furnishings, although always neat and clean, are a reflection of the outside. 365 days per year 10 women and their children live in the Shelter. The furniture shows it! We imagine… IKEA’s donation will enable us to improve the Shelter living environment for the women and their children by replacing the tired, worn furniture in the common areas.
