for web YWCA Group wide
The YWCA offers low-cost and free housing to women in crisis. Our goal for each woman is the same: to give her an affordable, safe, supportive place to stay and to connect her with whatever resources she needs to get her life back on track. Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They are provided with everything from childcare and job training to violence prevention and leadership training. We work to build strong women leaders and advocate for women’s rights and civil rights in Congress. Find a local association near you!
