Women’s Resource Center

For women and families in challenging situations, the center provides a range of services to meet their needs, helping them achieve their personal and professional goals through information, education, referral and support.

The Baby Basics Closet is the only one of its kind in Guilford County, and it provides diapers, wipes, clothes and other baby care necessities to more than 600 families per year. YWCA works with partner organizations to provide this service. Vouchers are given to people in need who then use them to shop at the Baby Basics Closet.

The Computer Lab gives YWCA clients access to computers and the Internet – technology that they may not have at home. In addition to making computers available for job searching and resume development, the lab provides our members access to basic computer classes and some community college courses.

The Career Closet offers clothing suitable for work or interviews. The clothing is new or lightly used and is donated by individuals and/or companies that participate in clothing drives. Anyone can shop in the Career Closet and clothing is provided for free, by referral, for those in need who have an interview. Having professional clothing to wear to an interview helps participants feel more confident, and the program provides sustainable income for the center.

YWCA offers educational programs for the community including Economic Seminars, resume writing, mock interviews and other topics related to the needs of women in our community.

Other Support Services include one-on-one information and referrals to all Human Services Providers in the community along with follow-up and access to the Resource Library and Women In Transition support groups.
