ON A MISSION TO PROVIDE MEALS TO HOMELESS FAMILIES
In 2005, YWCA Columbus responded to a community call to take over emergency shelter and services for families without homes. Many are working poor and unable to meet high housing costs; many are women raising children alone. The 50-room center offers these families safety and support, a place where they can get three healthy meals a day, and a warm, secure place to sleep.
We rely on volunteers and donors 365 days a year to provide meals to homeless families staying at our Family Center. This saves the organization over $200,000 annually, and when there’s a crisis, this need is even more crucial.
Provide a Meal
Provide a full meal for families through physically providing the meal/ingredients or making a monetary donation for our kitchen to provide the meal. Send a small group to help with the preparation and boxing (optional).
Sponsor a Meal
Financially sponsor a meal (or part of a meal) for our kitchen staff to prepare and serve for a donation of:
$300 for breakfast | $500 for lunch or dinner
Contribute to Part of a Meal
NEW! Community Night is an evening where the community comes together to donate a full meal for families. This takes place on the last day of the month (except for Dec). Shop our amazon wish list, drop off items or make a donation.
Prepare a meal
Volunteer at the YWCA Family Center and help our kitchen team prepare a sponsored dinner. This is a great opportunity for individuals or small groups. Find more information on VolunteerHub.
