Thank you, Cobb County!


We all have a lot to be thankful for during this time of year. This year the YWCA of Northwest Georgia is truly grateful to our community. Because of the extraordinary generosity of individuals, foundations, and corporations, we have finally completed our $7.2 million capital campaign. We have already completed the building of 12 new transitional housing apartments. Also, we have expanded and renovated our counseling/training facilities, computer lab, regional sexual assault center, and existing office space. On behalf of the women, children, and men we serve, we are thankful for the partnerships and commitments so many have made to the YWCA of Northwest Georgia.

Our plan is to start the renovation on the final and most important phase of this project, the domestic violence shelter, before the end of this year. We will be expanding from a 32 bed shelter to a 40 bed shelter, with a full kitchen and dining room so families can eat together. Some additional features of the shelter renovation will include: play and study areas for the children, an expanded living room, counseling and child therapy rooms, and bedrooms with private bathrooms.

The YWCA of Northwest Georgia’s ability to provide a place to call "Home" for those in need of a safe place to rebuild their lives is finally happening because of the tremendous support from our great community. You are giving them the opportunity to rise above the environment they find themselves in and become survivors. You are giving them another chance at a new life. A safe life. A happy life. A violence free life.

Again, thank you for your contributions to the YWCA of Northwest Georgia. Your commitment to our community and to those we serve has put us one step closer to a community free of domestic violence and sexual assault!
