What We Do
YWCA Central Carolinas is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people. YWCA Central Carolinas supports more than 250 youth from fragile communities, as well as women and families facing homelessness and educates, engages and connects community members through our racial justice and advocacy work. In addition, YWCA provides a co-ed fitness center empowering fitness members in their wellness journey.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - YWCA's SPECIFIC NEEDS:
How We Are Impacted: All of YWCA's Youth Learning Centers have temporarily closed, keeping over 250 students throughout Mecklenburg and Union Counties at home, and all Racial Justice programs in the month of March and early April have been canceled/postponed.
Financial Donations Requested: Through your financial support YWCA is able to continue providing safe, transitional housing to our Park Road residents as well as needed resources like hygiene products and cleaning supplies. The women and families of our housing programs may need extra support in receiving food as well, like that of canned and dry foods.
