YWCA Kalamazoo is a nonprofit association affiliated with YWCA USA. Founded in 1885 to provide a safe residence for young working women, the organization is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
In the past years, through its focus on the mission of eliminating racism and empowering women, the YWCA has addressed disparities in our community through evidence-based and holistic programming.
Through direct service, outreach, and community education, the YWCA reaches over 7,500 women, children and families each year. In addition, the YWCA focuses on 1) providing services for victim of abuse (domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking), 2) providing high quality childcare for families, 3) advocating for race and gender equity through system change and 4) promoting maternal and child health to improve birth outcomes.
During the month of April, Water Street is participating in YWCA’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month. This month, we will help to spread the word via Facebook, Twitter, the “A Cup of Prevention” cup stickers. Water Street is proud to be an active part of helping to build more insight and conversation about many important issues and the related services available at the YWCA Kalamazoo.
Water Street is proud to support YWCA Kalamazoo and hopes you can help us in this effort.
