YWCA Central Alabama is a social justice organization dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. For 117 years, we have worked at the intersection of race and gender equity. Our programs and services are designed to address systemic disparities. We work every day to respond to the needs of women and their families. We provide safe, affordable housing and work to keep families experiencing homelessness together during their time of crisis. We help domestic violence victims escape abusive relationships and gain the strength to become survivors. Our nationally-accredited child development program allows children in families experiencing homelessness and working poor families to get the very best start in life.
