Board of Directors

“The YWCA Knoxville & the Tennessee Valley provides services and hope for an often ignored and certainly underserved population. The YWCA has been able to truly change the lives of so many women and children by providing the skills and knowledge to assist them in becoming self-sufficient and, more than that, self-confident. How could I not want to be a part of such an influential organization that changes people lives for the better? It is a privilege to serve on this board.” – Janet Jungclaus, Past Board Member.
