YWCA Central Alabama Charity Profile
Since 1903, the YWCA Central Alabama has strived to create a more caring community. For more than 100 years, the YW continues to plant the seeds of hope providing comfort where there is pain, love where there is loneliness and a light where there is darkness. The YWCA serves as a place of refuge, responding to the needs of women and their families providing hope and opportunities in a warm, family-like environment.
The YW's programs and services focus on three major areas: child care, domestic violence services and affordable housing. The YW also sponsors a Women's Resource Center and a Visual and a Chapel Gallery for Visual and Performing Arts in addition to programs and events that enhance the well being of women and children in Central Alabama.
The YWCA Central Alabama is an organization of women whose mission is to create a more caring community. Founded in the Christian faith, the YW is a diverse group that identifies and responds to the needs of women and families of all races and religions. The YW plays a leadership and collaborative role as it works to achieve positive change in the lives of individuals and in the community.
YWCA Central Alabama Volunteer Information
When a home is no longer safe ground; when every day is a question of survival under the harshest conditions. It's time to find sanctuary. At the YWCA, we provide women and children with shelter, support, and opportunities to reclaim their lives when tragedy strikes - from victims of domestic violence to homeless families to women who simply have hit hard times. You can be an integral part of helping these victims become survivors through the many volunteer positions at the YWCA. Potential volunteers are asked to complete an application and attend a training session with YW staff.
Due to the nature of the services that the YW provides to women and children, volunteers working with children, and in some cases, volunteers working with our domestic violence program, will undergo background checks.
