YWCA

Description of Agency: 

The YWCA of Asheville is YOUR community center. Whether you are looking for a comfortable workout facility, somewhere safe to bring your children, or a compassionate listener who will help guide you through a rough time, we welcome you.

The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women. We offer programs that bridge gaps in education, health care, child care and earning power. These programs include a Child Care Center, School-Age Program (After-School and Summer Camp), MotherLove (mentoring for teen moms), New Choices (support for displaced homemakers), Preventive Health/Diabetes Wellness, Aquatics and the YWCA Club W Fitness Center.

Upcoming Events:

Stand Against Racism

The YWCA’s Stand Against Racism, which happens annually in April, is a partnership of over 70 YWCA Associations throughout the country with the goal of bringing people together from all walks of life to raise awareness that racism still exists and that it can no longer be ignored or tolerated. Our strength is in numbers!

Any group of any size can become a Participating Site of the Stand Against Racism: corporations large or small, schools (from elementary schools to universities), government agencies, non-profit or civic organizations, hospitals, churches or synagogues, even two neighbors gathered around a kitchen table.

As a Participating Site of the Stand Against Racism, you can host a “Stand” at your location. It could be either private or public. Or you can attend another group's event. There is no cost to participate. Sign ups for 2013 will begin in the Fall.

Events
