The YWCA of Duluth is committed to providing the resources and tools necessary to empower young women to achieve their financial, housing, and educational goals. Our organization has recently piloted a new employment initiative that is placing young mothers who have participated in our Young Mother’s Supportive Housing Program in permanent YWCA positions. This enables the women to gain employable skills onsite and with the support structure that they are familiar with. Our first position has been successfully filled and we will be seeking opportunities to expand this initiative as we move forward.
