About Us

OUR MISSION

YWCA Central Alabama is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. 

OUR VISION

YWCA Central Alabama’s vision is to create a more caring community. We work every day to make a positive change in the lives of individuals and in the community.

Our focus is on four main areas: affordable housing, quality child development programs for children of homeless and working poor families, domestic violence services, and social justice programming.

YWCA Central Alabama responds to the needs of women, children and families, following the dream of our founder, Maybelle Sloss, who set out in 1903 to serve women of small salaries in adverse circumstances. We provide shelter, dignity, hope, and a strong foundation as we help those we serve find the strength to rebuild their lives.
