Love makes a difference

The YMCA’s regular blog on is a shining example of how love can make a difference. The story is simple in its sadness. A young mother, Francesca, a victim of abuse reaches the end of her tether and jumps ship. Her family retaliates by cutting her out and persecuting her legally to the extent that they brought her to her knees.

The help and TLC afforded by YMCA helped Francesca and her young child back on their feet. Counsellors helped them plan their days and find stability so that Francesca could find time to earn her way while her daughter was at school.

This is the story of Francesca, where a little TLC changed two lives.
