Make the holidays a season of hope for people facing homelessness in central Ohio. Your support will provide essential items, from toothbrushes to coats, to help families in emergency shelter at the YWCA Family Center.
"Thank you for supporting the YWCA Columbus! Your generous gift has helped provide hope to families facing homelessness in central Ohio this holiday season. Thanks to you, we were able to provide basic care items and more than 140 coats to families in need."
– Faith Williams, Vice President of Programs
The YWCA Family Center provides emergency shelter and critical services to stabilize homeless families in central Ohio. Last year, the center served 650 families with healthy meals, warm beds, basic need items, and transportation assistance. Upon arrival, each family is assigned an advocate who assists with housing, job counseling, and services for children. Childcare is provided for young children and school-age kids are transported to their school, while parents seek jobs and housing.
Thanks to you, $5,000 was raised for the YWCA Family Center to provide personal care items and warm winter coats to parents and children experiencing homelessness.
Eliminate racism; empower women; and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
