YWCA Union County, NJ
- New Jersey
The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. In this context, we are on a mission to empower survivors of domestic violence to become safe and free from abuse, and to promote social justice and eliminate violence against women and girls. We accomplish this through the provision of comprehensive, client-centered services and through education, collaboration and advocacy that builds safe, informed and supportive communities.
The YWCA Union County opened its doors in 1920 and since then has been serving the women, children, and families of Union County. In 1978, in response to the growing concern about domestic violence in Union County, the YWCA Union County established this as our focus of service delivery.
Currently the YWCA is the lead agency in Union County NJ providing comprehensive services for survivors of domestic violence. Services include shelter, supportive and transitional housing, counseling, legal advocacy , 24 hour hotline, domestic violence response teams, children's program (PALS), workforce development, and domestic violence/child abuse liaison.
