The YWCA offers low-cost and free housing to women in crisis. Their 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 them in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. The women are provided with everything from childcare and job training to violence prevention and leadership training. They work to build strong women leaders and advocate for women's rights and civil rights in Congress.
"YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all."
