YWCA Greater Memphis Leadership with Congressman Cohen on YWCA National Advocacy Day

For nearly 100 years, the YWCA of Greater Memphis has strived to meet the changing needs of women, children and their families. Yes, we have made significant progress, in changing for the better thousands of lives, yet there is so much to be done!

We appreciate the time, talent and resources provided by the hundreds of women, men and youth donated annually to the YWCA to assure the continuation and expansion of our services.

We are honored to lead the YWCA into its second century and with your continued support, the YWCA of Greater Memphis will continue to provide services which empower women and families.

Warmest Regards,
