YWCA Greensboro offers a full selection of programs and services for women and families

Supporting adolescent parents to get an education, acquire job skills, and improve parenting abilities helps them become self-sufficient and better able to support themselves and their families.

Pregnant women and their partners are invited to take our adult childbirth education classes. The classes are taught by certified instructors and provide health information for women, newborn care information, breastfeeding education and support, a hospital tour and a meal during the class.

Our onsite Emergency Family Shelter serves families with minor children experiencing homelessness. Families receive meals, case management, a safe place to stay, and connections to community resources to help them obtain and maintain permanent housing.

Serving pregnant or parenting teens (ages 19 and younger) and their children through case managers, mentors, doula support, and peer group support.

Working with young women aged 20 to 30, YWCA staff offer childbirth education, doula support, case management, and peer group education during pregnancy and beyond.
