YWCA Columbus stands-up against injustices within our community and passionately protects the most vulnerable among us. They empower women, people of color, and the underprivileged by initiating systematic social change that will create a Columbus of peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Their 50-room emergency shelter offers families a secure place to sleep while they receive the critical support they need to find permanent housing.
