Eliminating racism and empowering women is the central tenet of YWCA El Paso Del Norte Region’s mission. Over the last two years, our community has faced tragedy ranging from unprecedented racial violence to a public health crisis at a scale few have ever experienced.

Throughout it all, the YWCA has intervened with multiple programs created specifically to heal physical, emotional, and psychological scars left behind by adverse experience and address the needs of trauma survivors. This is yet another reason why our community a City with Strength and was selected as a #AAC2021 finalist!

I am very disappointed in the system. I just found out an acquaintance from Mexico City!! flew in yesterday and was vaccinated, he is not a resident nor a U.S. citizen. How is it possible that priority is given to people from other countries over citizens of our country.
My parents are 83 years old, with underlying conditions. l have registered them on several websites and have not been able to get them vaccinated. Several people around me, much younger have already been vaccinated because they know someone in the medical field and were favored. I need someone to reach out to me and please let me know why my parents have not been able to get an appointment as of yet.
When will the city address the disparity of COVID numbers?! (the fact that active cases has been over 35,000 since NOV and has not changed in the days since the report). Don't just let the recent investigation by KFOX be swept under the rug/ignored. Our mayor needs to be on top of this issue. The people of El Paso deserve accurate information.
I AM very frustrated about getting my second shot. i have called several times and been on hold for hours with the recorded loop. no one is giving the same information twice, i got the email/text to schedule my second shot and when i went to set it up it would only give me tomorrw 2/3 which is less then the 28 days. it would not let me pick the 7th when that is the day i should be getting it on. can someone please contact me regarding this matter.
We have Free Covid testing this afternoon 1/29 until 545 PM and tomorrow 1/30 from 9 AM-5 PM @ Cantico Nuevo 11530 Pellicano Ave. El Paso, TX 79936
Buenas tardes. Se que este grupo no.es para esto, pero quiero pedirles porfavor , si alguien de ustedes me puede orientar El viernes 22 de Enero como a las 5:00 pm nos choco una pareja. Ellos quisieron cambiar de carril .y nunca se fijaron que ivamos a un lado. El joven acepto que no se fijo pues su esposa le dijo que no venia nada y el se quiso cambiar de carril chocandonos , despues que llego el policía cambio la versión nego ser el responsable, ahora el se adelanto y puso el reporte a su aseguranza, como si el no fue culpable 😠. Mi pregunta es , como puedo sacar los videos de las cámaras del 54 y Montana Para presentar el reclamo con evidencias, para que me puedan pagar. Por que mi camioneta ya no funcionó le pego en la llanta y quebró una parte que va al volante y ahora no sirve da vueltas y vueltas y estoy desesperada por que es el unico transporte que tengo si me pueden orientar se los voy agradecer mucho😭🙏
Submitted since Dec 30 as 1B classification. Still no word on when I will get vaccination. Maybe a list of where is one in the queue might help.
You have done nothing to help me
So far 3 days later and I still can't get ahold of anyone to update them on the whereabouts of my van
My van got stolen in your city and you are not doing anything about it. I have bin # and a gos tracked it to plano tx. So please help me
There needs to be changes as far as allowing a relative be in the hospital with their loved ones. It is ridiculous and inhumane to not allow even 1 person. We are human beings. The company and love of a person can make a world of a difference and possibly reduce the number of people dying. Put a system in place. Just like the rest of the other places have a system. The person who is with the patient can be tested and not allowed to leave. If they leave then they cannot return. YOU cannot continue to let people die without a loved one close to them.
