Sharon Roberson, President & CEO of YWCA Nashville, discusses the added pressure that COVID-19 has had on the community and how YWCA are meeting these urgent needs.
Nashville does have a thriving philanthropic community, but the city has grown so significantly and we have to broaden giving in order to meet all of the community’s needs.
For 120 years, YWCA Nashville & Middle Tennessee has helped women, girls and families in Nashville and Middle Tennessee build safer, more self-sufficient lives. The Nashville YWCA operates the largest domestic violence shelter in Tennessee. It also offers a multitude of services for young girls and boys and is a local Girls Inc. and Dress for Success affiliate. The YW also operates a Family Literacy Center. As a YWUSA affiliate, YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
