THE STORY:

YWCA South Hampton Roads was founded in 1911 and formally incorporated in 1917, and is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the region.  During our first 100 years of service to the community, the YWCA of South Hampton Roads served over a quarter of a million women and children in the region.  Over the years, our organization has expanded its programs to meet the changing needs of individuals and families living in our communities. 


Currently, the YWCA of South Hampton Roads offers the following programs:  

  1. Coordinated Crisis Response, a program offering a 24/7 hotline that provides violence survivors with access to trained crisis counselors, emergency shelter placement, and victim advocacy.
  2. Emergency Shelter and Housing Programs for survivors of domestic and      sexual violence.
  3. Crisis Counseling, a program that offers comprehensive mental health services      to survivors of sexual assault and interpersonal violence.
  4. Victim Advocacy and medical/court accompaniment.
  5. Out-of-School Time Program, a program providing developmental activities for children ages 3 to 12 years. OTS Programs are available in four elementary schools in Norfolk including Oceanair, Mary Calcott, Ocean View, and Tanners Creek.

The YWCA of South Hampton Roads addresses one of the darkest secrets of American society - domestic violence. No one wants to talk about it, but it is a frightening reality for women, and even men. If you think it doesn’t happen to anyone that you know, think again. According to the National Center Against Violence, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner. That is more than 10 million individuals who suffer from abuse each year! Furthermore, one in three women and one in four men experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime. The sobering statistics above depict domestic violence in the United States as the epidemic that it truly is. You may be wondering what you can do to end domestic violence. Start here, start now. Join the YWCA South Hampton Roads Purple Purse Challenge Team, and share our story with your friends, family, and colleagues. Please choose to be part of the solution and help end domestic violence in our community!
