SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — The interim head of the Shreveport YWCA says its board probably will consider dissolving when it meets on Thursday.
Interim Executive Director Judi Bishop tells The Times it would take a miracle to avoid the vote.

She says the YWCA has a yearly budget of about $900,000. But she says it needs $150,000 quickly to continue providing a home for 22 women and children who have been in abusive relationships.

Bishop said this is the first time to her knowledge the board of directors for the YWCA would have considered dissolution, but financial and legal issues have plagued the organization for years.
