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 YWCA Central Alabama’s programs and services focus on three major areas: child care, domestic violence services, social justice and affordable housing. The YW also sponsors a Women’s Resource Center 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.
