Can you be a shining light?
Be an influence in the lives of women and families who are living through housing instability. Can you be a shining light to these women and families? We at YWCA are looking for volunteers to engage in direct services through Enrichment Classes and as mentors. YWCA supports women's empowerment and economic advancement and hopes to enroll more volunteers who will promote self-care, wellness, and leadership development.
Who is YWCA North Central Washington?
YWCA North Central Washington is a local association to YWCA, a global non-profit organization. Both are dedicated to one mission: eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Our local vision at YWCA North Central Washington is to empower women, men, and children to break the cycle of economic insecurity and homelessness and achieve self-sufficiency through assistance, support, and education. We are addressing this by sustained programs in homeless housing - case management - diversity, equity, and inclusion training - job training - advocacy and outreach - clothing assistance - economic empowerment - enrichment classes - and much more.
About YWCA North Central Washington
212 First St, Wenatchee, WA 98801, US
YWCA North Central Washington is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA-NCW focuses efforts on the most relevant issues in our community. We strive to eliminate homelessness, end racism and discrimination, and provide life skills education and job training for women and women with children who struggle with housing and earning a living-wage.
In 2008, our first Women’s Shelter was opened and began giving women in need a temporary place to stay, all while giving them the tools necessary to stay off the streets and out of homelessness. In 2011, we opened our own thrift store to provide another form of job training and education. In 2014, YWCA-NCW launched the New Bridges Transitional Housing Program for women and women with children; this program allows for up to a one year stay in order to accommodate growth in self-sufficiency.
As we continue into the future of our organization, we will strive to search for more ways to bring new opportunities to those who are homeless and underprivileged, creating more events and fundraisers to promote awareness and diversity, and continue to work with the City of Wenatchee and the State of Washington to help end homelessness, empower women, and eliminate racism.
