About Us


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


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.

YWCA Central Alabama is a social justice organization. Our focus is on three main areas: affordable housing, quality child development programs for children of homeless and working poor families, and domestic violence services.

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.


YWCA Central Alabama is headquartered in the heart of downtown Birmingham at 309 23rd Street North.
