The YWCA Greensboro provides a variety of programs and services for people in need through our parenting programs, community engagement initiatives, youth empowerment opportunities, and through our onsite emergency family shelter.

February is Black History Month. We observe Black History Month as an organization dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

Our organization makes strong efforts to support the Black community, advocate for equity, and alleviate disparities among racial minorities. Our organization is proudly led by Black/African American women, and a large majority of the participants we serve in our programs are Black/African American as well. Our Healthy Moms Healthy Babies program is designed specifically for mothers that belong to a racial minority, who are disproportionately at a higher risk for infant mortality. Our Board of Directors features a Racial and Social Justice Committee, tasked to guide our involvement with racial and social justice issues, advance our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion policies and practices, and organize events designed to reach historically underserved populations.

Amazon Wish Lists

Amazon Wish Lists are a great tool to know exactly what sort of items our programs need. The best part is that it allows you to easily add items to your cart as you do your regular Amazon shopping. Amazon Wish Lists show how many of an item is needed, and how many have been purchased so far, so you know exactly what to buy to meet the needs of our programs.

The YWCA sustains and grows based on the support and generosity of our friends. Donations help to ensure that we provide high-quality services and enable us to provide programs and services to meet community needs.

Volunteers are invaluable to the YWCA Greensboro! We rely on volunteers to help prepare and serve meals to our shelter residents, serve as mentors to young women in our programs and lend a helping hand for our program directors. Make your time count as a volunteer at the YWCA.
