COVID-19 UPDATE

Traditionally, we have one-time, short-term, seasonal, and ongoing opportunities for adults and youth; however, out of an abundance of caution, in-person volunteer opportunities are on hold until we can fully restart our programs and engage our clients and YOU in service in the safest manner. For virtual and available service opportunities, please click: new opportunities (we will update this link as engagement opportunities become available, so check it frequently). We also invite you to visit our wish lists and consider donating various program items and COVID-19 necessities to the YW domestic violence emergency shelters. Thank you for choosing YWCA as your place of service! Refer questions to 205.322.9922 or ywcacommunications@ywcabham.org.
