It's Women's History Month And We Are Honoring Our Own Sheroes!

Nanci Okerlund was fortunate to have grown up in a stable, loving family where every stray and outcast she brought home to care for was welcomed with open arms. (Even now in her 60s, she has 5 rescue cats and a dog to care for at home.) Her calling has always been service to people who most need help, so it is natural that she runs the Transitions Housing program at the Jamestown YWCA, where women and children have a safe place to live and access to several resources while they get back on their feet.
