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

YW Counseling & Referral Center (YWCRC)

The YWCRC offers quality and affordable trauma informed counseling and support services for individuals, couples, families and groups in both English and Spanish (and other languages as needed) to address concerns and live healthier lives.

Population(s) Served

Since 1996, the Generation YW Program has provided evidence-based prevention services for 11-17 year old youth that focus on improving a young person’s overall physical, intellectual, social and emotional well-being. We aim to interrupt the onset or progression of substance abuse, as well as implement the early detection of other problem behaviors that could be detrimental in the future of our youth.

Population(s) Served

YWCA’s Volunteer and Training Institute provides a variety of trainings that help educate the Austin community on gender and race-based inequities. The Volunteer & Training Institute promotes racial justice and civil rights by building capacity both within the YWCA Greater Austin and in the Greater Austin community to address the root causes of the gender and racial injustice from the personal to the professional and institutional. This includes the recruitment and training of volunteers, the provision of continuing education units for licensed professionals, as well as organizational training for community entities seeking to address equity issues in their work. The YWCA Greater Austin is a regionally recognized training and internship site for students completing their licensure requirements in social work and counseling.

Population(s) Served

The Gateway Program is the point of entry into YWCA Greater Austin Services. It includes reception services, intake assessments, bridge childcare subsidies, and case management services. Each of these services are provided to empower our clients and connect them with the tools necessary to meet their goals.
