Review for Young Women's Christian Assn. Of El Paso Texas Ywca, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

When supporters of the YWCA in El Paso, TX learned that women had been sleeping in their cars in the parking lots of the Y's branch facilities because they had no place to live, they became determined to build a transitional living center for homeless women and children. Today, the TLC is home to over 250 participants, women and children who are regaining their dignity and working toward self-sufficiency and permanent housing. Through job training, educational completion, tutoring, wellness programs, parenting classes and more, the TLC is assisting women and their families by giving them a "hand up", not a "hand out". It has grown to become the largest transitional living center in the El Paso, TX region.

Role:  Volunteer & I serve on the advisory committee of the TLC and have volunteered in many capacities for several years.
