Every Gift Matters
Your gift to YWCA Central Carolinas goes to work immediately to lift up and support women, children and families who have found a safe harbor with us. Most people know we have a co-ed fitness center and indoor pool on the first floor of our Park Road building. What people don’t know is that on the three floors above the fitness center, we provide safe, affordable housing for over 60 women facing homelessness, we built 10 townhomes for families facing homelessness behind our building and we have 9 Youth Learning Centers strategically placed in low socio-economic neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg and Union Counties to teach reading skills to over 300 students after school during the school year and all day during the summer at no cost to their families. By supporting YWCA Central Carolinas, you are supporting individuals in our community that need it most. Meet Lisa and see how your gift can change someone’s life.
