Nationwide, Americans are taking a Stand Against Racism April 23-26, 2020. Will you take the pledge?

YWCA Central Alabama hosted its KIDS Korner Luncheon on Feb. 13, 2020, and raised $141,996 (and counting) to support our child development program for children from homeless and low-income families.
YWCA Central Alabama honored recently retired CEO Yolanda N. Sullivan as 2019 Jeana P. Hosch Woman of Valor. The award was presented Jan. 30, 2020, at the board’s Annual Meeting. This honor is bestowed each year upon deserving extraordinary, inspirational leaders who work tirelessly to care for women, children and families in the community.
At YWCA Central Alabama, we believe those who have the least deserve the very best start in life. That’s why we offer a nationally-accredited child and youth development program for children of low-income, homeless and working families. Join us at 11:30 a.m. on Feb. 13 for our 13th annual KIDS Korner Luncheon at the BJCC East Ballroom.
The winter holiday season is an especially difficult time for many families living in poverty, as parents feel pressure to create a festive atmosphere while still struggling to meet basic needs. #GivingTuesday is your opportunity to make a difference in their lives. (We would also love it if you would consider launching a Facebook Campaign.)
