Programs & Services

YWCA Knoxville and the Tennessee Valley serves clients from all backgrounds, year-round at our Phyllis Wheatley Center, Downtown Knoxville, and Oak Ridge facilities.

We provide safe, affordable housing to women and their families. We empower victims of domestic violence with the tools they need to escape their abusers. Our innovative GameChangers program encourages boys and men to prevent violence against women. Students at the Phyllis Wheatley Center participate in evidence-based programs design to help them succeed in school and beyond. We encourage healthy living with our affordable Club W membership program.

The YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Join us.
