Today, YWCA Walla Walla, alongside YWCA USA and more than 220 other YWCAs around the country, launched a brand awareness campaign, meant to reintroduce YWCA, share its life-changing work, and invite people to join us on our mission to empower women and eliminate racism.
“The new brand helps show that our work is not static nor is it ever finished. While YWCA Walla Walla offers critical services, the work doesn’t stop there. Our mission and history call us to focus ultimately on changing society and cultural norms,” said Anne-Marie Zell Schwerin, YWCA Walla Walla’s Executive Director.
YWCA Is On A Mission
For over 150 years, YWCA has been at the forefront of the most critical social movements — from voting rights and civil rights, to affordable housing and pay equity, to violence prevention and health care reform. But despite important work being done on the ground by more than 220 local associations across the country, not enough people understood the size, impact, or relevance of YWCA.
Today, YWCA is one of the top 25 largest charities in the U.S., according to NonProfit Times, with total revenues of more than $775 million. YWCA helps more than 2 million women and children each year in the U.S., and worldwide, YWCA serves 25 million women and girls in 120 countries.
At YWCA Walla Walla, we enrich the lives of women and their families in our community.
- Our signature program, the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Resource Center, comprises two domestic violence shelters, support groups, legal and health advocacy, access to information, emergency room support, and more. In 2015, YWCA Walla Walla served 1,010 survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and provided emergency housing for 380 women and children.
- We offer quality, licensed childcare programs through My Friends’ House (ages 1-5) and Adventure Clubs (grades K-6). In 2015, these programs served 191 children.
- Our Fun Factory van brought summer crafts, games, and reading opportunities to 2,627 children in underserved neighborhoods in 2015, and our afterschool empowerment programs reached 162 young girls in Dayton Girls Circle and Mariposa.
But there is still unmet need. With this brand awareness campaign, we invite the public to join us on a mission, and help even more women, children, and families.
