Programs: Child Care Services: Seven centers provide quality subsidized and affordable child care to more than 600 children each year. We consider the needs and interests of the children first; our mission is "It's all about the kids." Our child care staff is trained in cultural sensitivity to meet the needs of our diverse community. Centers are located in low- to moderate-income areas and we have been serving Silicon Valley families for over sixty years. Counseling Services: We strive to promote the emotional, mental, and behavioral well-being of our community. We offer a variety of therapy and support services to individuals, couples, and families. Short- and long-term counseling, including women's support groups are offered. These services are provided on an income- based sliding-scale fee schedule, putting counseling within reach for people at the very low- to middle-income levels. Our School-Based Counseling Program places YWCA Counselors on-campus at 16 middle, high, and continuation schools within the San Jose Unified School District. Family Enrichment Center: The YWCA offers an array of Family Enrichment services and workshops in support of parents and their families throughout Santa Clara County. Our goal is to provide parents and families with the knowledge and skills to encourage a healthy, nurturing environment where family relationships can thrive, preventing abuse, neglect, and family violence. Workshops are offered throughout the year county-wide in English, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Supervised (Monitored) Visitation Services are also available, providing a safe, nurturing environment for non-custodial parents and their children to enjoy time together. Rape Crisis Center and Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Programs: The YWCA works within Santa Clara County to minimize the traumatic aftermath of sexual assault. We provide a 24-hour crisis hotline, immediate crisis counseling and assistance, information and referrals, and accompaniment services to medical, police, and court facilities. Additionally, we annually reach over 15,000 students; grade K through 12, with age-appropriate sexual assault awareness and prevention programs. A YWCA MyStrength
