Earlier this month, Birmingham’s Childcare Resources awarded our CEO Suzanne Durham the Margie Curry Lifetime Achievement Award due to her more than 30 years of committed service to women and children in Central Alabama.
At the YWCA we believe that every child deserves a safe place to learn and grow, which is why we have a nationally accredited child care center. We believe that every child deserves a birthday party, that's why we make sure every child we serve blows out candles on their birthday. And we believe that children deserve a happy holiday season, filled with the magic and wonder of giving and receiving. That's why we have Santa’s Workshop. This year’s annual event will be Saturday, December 14, 2013.
The YWCA Central Alabama continuously strives to serve the needs of women, children and families across our region. The YWoodlawn Revitalization Enrichment Project, for example, has been an ongoing effort to transform several acres of once blighted housing into an award-winning neighborhood. Over the past six years the YWCA has established key partnerships and collaborations which have tremendously helped this initiative.
During this season of thanks, our staff, Board and Junior Board members share why they are thankful for the YWCA. From Social Justice to Domestic Violence Services, Housing and Child Care, we are proud to make a positive impact on the lives of women, children and families in Central Alabama.
