Pick Up Supplies & Find Resources

Open to everyone! Starting Sept. 12, people can pick up supplies and meet with rotating community partners who can help offer information on job training, ESL classes, health insurance and more.

YWCA Midtown’s Resource Hub uses an online reservation system to help ensure the safety and comfort of our community members, and to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We rely on donations from the community and may not have every personal care item available.
