YWCA Greensboro Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women

Courage and Commitment Campaign

Our Courage and Commitment Campaign is already at over 80% of our $5 million goal! This campaign supports our current programming as well as future programs to empower women and children.

Emergency Family Shelter

The Family Shelter program provides shelter, food, and support for families experiencing homelessness. Assistance is provided to develop plans for education, health, financial stability, and ultimately move into permanent housing.

Passion to Purse Program

Passion to Purse provides support and education for women to create their own microenterprises. Each session helps participants become more self-sufficient and increase their ability to support their families.

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.
