Week Without Violence

Week Without Violence is part of a YWCA National and global movement to end violence against women and girls. Not all violence is acknowledged or responded to equally. That’s why, for more than 20 years, YWCA has set aside one week in October as a Week Without Violence to build awareness of gender-based violence and foster change. Join us on the week of October 19-23, 2020 as we hold events, share information and stories, advocate, and more. Together, we can end gender based violence!

In accordance with Governor Wolf’s directive to shelter-in-place through Thursday, April 30th, our Wood Street office, Homewood-Brushton location with childcare services, and Pre-K Counts classroom located at Propel Braddock Hills are currently closed. Parents will be notified once they are able to reopen.  Our staff is working remotely to continue to provide important services to our community.  Please check our website for updates and to sign up to be a friend of the YWCA Greater Pittsburgh.  For a list of local resources, please follow this link.
