Causes: Homelessness and Housing, Social Justice, Women's Issues

YWCA El Paso del Norte Region has served the El Paso community for 111 years. Since 1909, our goal has been to empower and improve the lives of El Pasoans. We started as a cafeteria for working women and grew into a teen girl empowerment group, a group home for women, and a businesswomen’s association- all before women could even vote. More recently YWCA stayed open during the pandemic and even has a program offering free childcare, so needed by families at this time. YWCA has seen domestic violence and child abuse rise during the time of the pandemix. Your support means so much this year. Thank you for being a part of the solution for so many!!

TODAY, YWCA El Paso provides

  • A safe place for women and children who have survived domestic violence. Residents of our Transitional Living Center receive counseling, case management, education and employment support, childcare support, and much more.
  • Affordable housing for seniors and other El Pasoans
  • Free workforce development courses for El Pasoans looking for a new career.
  • A community and support system for thousands of El Pasoans, particularly seniors, at our four Health and Wellness Centers
  • Excellent early childhood education at our seven Early Learning Academies. As a nonprofit, we are also able to provide scholarships to families who need support in finding and affording childcare.
  • More than 40 After School Programs that provide parents with peace of mind during after school hours and provide students with homework support, STEAM tutors and activities, and a safe, engaging environment.
  • Teen leadership programs in areas with high rates of students dropping out of high school.
  • And more!

When you give to YWCA El Paso, your gift provides a scholarship to a family in need of childcare, a life skills course for a woman who has survived and escaped domestic violence, a family and community for seniors at our gyms, programs designed to empower women and eliminate racism, and so much more. Below is the story of someone who currently lives at YWCA’s TLC. She is in a safe place, but we still need your support to help her reach all of her goals. A gift on El Paso Giving Day can make it possible for her to buy her school books, pay for childcare while she is in class, and find permanent housing. All of this is made possible because of donors like YOU.

“The first time he hit me, I was two months pregnant. I stayed with him because I wanted my child to have a father and I wanted a family. I thought for sure he would change when the baby was born, because how can a baby not change you? When our daughter was two months old, he threatened to hit me while she was laying right next to me. The next day I left with a suitcase full of diapers and not much else. I am so grateful to be at the YWCA Transitional Living Center. They have helped me go back to school, apply for scholarships, find childcare, and so much more. My daughter just turned one and she is such a happy baby and I think it is because she can tell how happy I am now. Being a mother is the most beautiful thing I have ever experienced and I want to say thank you to YWCA and to the men walking in high heels who have made all this possible. Thank you for letting us know that we are not alone. “
