YWCA Knoxville and the Tennessee Valley is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Programs Overview

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 designed to help them succeed in school and beyond.
