#AmplifyAustin2020 is officially underway. Use the donation button above within the next 24 hours to join our mission to eliminate racism and empower women! Help us #AmplifyATX!
For 113 years, YWCA has been on a mission to empower women, their children and their families and to transform the Greater Austin Community. Whether through affordable and linguistically appropriate counseling services, care-coordination that connects clients to needed resources, training that help address the root causes of gender inequity and racial injustice, and/or advocacy work, YWCA Greater Austin is a catalyst for personal and systemic change.
We need your help more than ever to continue this vital work in the community. Our supporters may remember that in October 2019, we suffered a severe funding lost that devastatingly caused YWCA Greater Austin to eliminate an entire program, our GenerationYW (GenYW) program which worked with at risk youth in schools to build positive relationships, develop life skills, and decrease the likelihood of sustenance use and abuse. In addition to this program cut and the consequential lost of our wonderful GenYW staff, two additional staff members had to be let go.
YWCA Greater Austin provides needed services that improve the lives of our clients. We need your support. We cannot eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities without you. Together, we can reach our 2020 Amplify Austin goal of $8,000.
