YWCA Family Village Redmond is a safe and beautiful building located in downtown Redmond with 20 units of transitional housing for families who have experienced homelessness. YWCA offices and services are located on the first floor, with recreational facilities on the south-facing side of the building. FVR offers additional programs and services such as Early-Learning & Head Start for children, Working Wardrobe for clients looking to dress to impress on interviews, and a Basic Food & Employment Training Program for clients. FVR is ADA accessible. Wheelchair-accessible bathrooms are available.
The FVR Early Learning Center Volunteer will work with program staff to help facilitate a positive, safe, healthy learning environment for children ages 12 months to 5 years. We provide services to low income and homeless children and their families from the Redmond community as well as families that live in our transitional housing units above the Early Learning Center. The YWCA values diversity and champions anti-racism policies and program delivery. Hand-in-hand with the teaching staff, the Center Assistant Volunteers continue to promote the YWCA values, as well as help children develop their individualized goals, develop self help skills, and learn problem solving skills.
