What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

YWCA Early Head Start

YWCA Early Head Start provides comprehensive educational and health services for pregnant adolescents, children of adolescent parents, young children with disabilities, and children and their families who are living in poverty. The program is first and foremost a child development program that enhances the development of children during their formative early childhood years. All children served are 0 – 3, with a goal of promoting school readiness and effective parenting.

Population(s) Served

YWCA Health Services addresses the needs of eople facing severe health crises (HIV/AIDS, breast cancer and teen pregnancy).

YWCA ENCOREplus offers grassroots breast and cervical health education and awareness to uninsured and underserved women. The program is designed to reduce deaths due to breast and cervical cancers among high-risk, medically underserved women. The program focuses on African American women aged 40 and older because of their disproportionately high death rate from these cancers, chiefly due to late detection; however, women of all Races and ethnicities are served.

YWCA RISE: (Reaching Impacting Strengthening & Empowering Women in the Fight Against HIV) educates citizens on appropriate lifestyle choices and sexual responsibility through community outreach, provides free HIV testing, saves lives through prevention and early detection, provides free supplies, and provides free pre-and post counseling to everyone we test.

YWCA SIHLE: (Sisters Informing Healing Living & Empowering) focuses on preventing the spread of HIV, other STDs and decreasing new teen pregnancies by providing a safe environment for group discussions, behavioral skills practice and role plays about sensitive topics such as abstinence, safe sex options, partner communication, media and social influence, gender and ethnic pride, etc.
