We heard that the YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter needed help with some projects around the center. They have a rather large piece of property with many trees, as well as some rather substantial flowerbeds that needed tilling to remove the crabgrass, thistles, and weeds. We answered the call and got to work. It took several days and lots of hands to help, but we managed to transform it into a restful park-like setting for the residents and staff to enjoy.

"YW Domestic Violence Services provides community based and residential services for women and children who are in dangerous relationships. The YW provides shelter in a confidential location and is available 24 hours a day for women and children who are in danger. The goal of the program is to foster a healing environment for these women and children to begin their path to safety and reclaiming their lives." (excerpt from the YW website)

Maintenance Solutions is proud to be a supporter of the YWCA and the heroic work they do for women and children.

Here is the kind letter of thanks we received from the YW.

"Dear Donald,

Thank you for all the time and effort you recently gave to the YW. Your help with the mulch has made our landscape beautiful again. You have completely changed the face of the Center making it an inviting place of hope and comfort. On behalf of the staff and residents. I want to let you know how much we appreciate your assistance.


Alisa Palmisano"
