YWRC Toy Shelf


When you volunteer at the Young Women’s Resource Center, you are helping to make the lives of young girls more successful. By helping us with fundraisers, food or donation drives, preparing and serving meals or with child care, you provide an essential part of our mission—giving young women a life of possibilities. There are many ways to help the Young Women’s Resource Center, and we, as well as the 1,500 girls and young women we serve annually, appreciate it all.

current needs:


Childcare volunteers are needed to watch over small children and infants during our Young Moms Support Group on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 5:45-7:30 p.m. This is not just “babysitting”. We have a literacy program dedicated to engaging the kids in activities such as reading and crafts.
