Local Experts and YWCA Spokane Chart Pathways Forward for Kids and Caregivers

Thank you to everyone who joined us for YWCA Spokane’s Pathways Forward roundtable event.

This year, YWCA Spokane launched our new Pathways Forward series to begin having progress-minded conversations as we enter the post-pandemic world. Our July discussion focused on the trauma experienced by kids and caregivers in our community. From interruptions to schooling to missed significant life events or even changes in routine, the last year and a half has taken a toll on kid’s and caregiver’s mental health.

In a panel moderated by YWCA Spokane CEO, Jeanette Hauck, our panelists offered possible solutions for caregivers, educators, and others to consider as we explore what our post-pandemic lives will look like.

Every journey through and out of domestic violence is extremely hard. Some people do not survive. Some are left with lasting scars, physically and emotionally. Families…
