The YWCA of Greater Austin helps women who are changing their lives who otherwise might not be served. Culturally sensitive services are offered to women and their families at an affordable cost.
I benefit from referrals to my independent practice and more importantly have taken continuing
education credits through the YWCA Greater Austin. I am able to receive ethics credits as well as learn new mental health practices from colleagues throughout the Austin area.
The YWCA of Greater Austin has a stellar herstory of activating the Y 's mission with integrity and Grace. Their commitment and impact is integral to what makes Austin a great city. I am proud to have served as a Contractor for the YWCA of Greater Austin, and to have been served by it's programs.
The YWCA of Greater Austin provides culturally sensitive services to women and their families at very low cost. Its staff goes above and beyond to provide support and referral services to everyone who comes in contact with them. I highly recommend it to clients and everyone I know might need an agency like the YWCA.
I worked for the YWCA for about 4 years as their bilingual-therapist. I have worked in many other great non-profits in my experience as an LCSW but my experience at the YWCA Greater Austin was my best of all. Not only I got super clinical supervision from Pam Schott, LCSW; but I also witness first-hand the commitment and dedication of the Executive Director, Diana Gorham and the rest of the non-clinical and clinical staff. The YWCA Greater Austin makes a difference in people's lives by providing meaningful services to children and families at a very low cost. I was honored to be part of this organization as an employee in the past and as a volunteer in the present.
The YWCA is a vibrant part of the Austin community offering services to clients as well as trainings for professionals. I had the privilege of working there twenty years ago, which was life-changing for me as a staffer and I am still a fan and supporter. I continue to be amazed at all of the good work they accomplish with very little money. They have been at the forefront of helping women and their families through crises of all kinds and I hope they receive the recognition they deserve.
The YWCA is not only an impatcful, counseling asset to our community, but also a wonderful source of learnign and training to those wanting to make a difference. As a graduate student of psychology, I have had the privelege of taking continuing education seminars in which I am gaining skils I would not have otherwise learned in the classroom. I look forward to interning with the talented YWCA counselors this January and continuing to grow my relationship with this institution.
The YWCA of Greater Austin not only does a fantastic job of serving low income women, but also has a ground breaking program for women vets! They support the psychotherapy community by offering outstanding professional trainings on a monthly basis as well as coordinating the Somatic Experiencing trainings. There are not many agencies with the YWCA's level of out reach to both clients and therapists. I am proud to be a supporting member of the YWCA of Greater Austin and have benefited tremendously by participating in their professional programs!
The YWCA of Austin is an exceptional institution. They provide an array of effective and targeted interventions to low-income people from all backgrounds. I know this because many of my doctoral students do practicum placements where they get to see the power of clinical interventions out in the community. They also have a powerful, dynamic speaker/workshop series addressing multicultural issues and in this way serve to inform the community. I am enormously impressed by what they accomplish year in and year out.
