Review for Young Women's Christian Assn. of El Paso Texas YWCA, El Paso, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Transitional Living Center of the El Paso YWCA is doing yeoman's service in the field of homelessness. Currently housing about 141 women and children, it restores hope and dignity to women who often have nowhere to turn. In addition to helping women secure their future by providing English and GED classes, the TLC guides women back to school or work and ensures their stability before encouraging them to move into their own housing. This year, the children got special attention through new Scouting programs, a reading and tutoring service and a focused health/fitness plan.

Role:  Volunteer & I volunteer as a board member to set the TLC budget and also serve on the advisory committee that oversees the TLC program. I also help with the Scouting programs for the children.
