As long time advocates of the YWCA my husband and I are so proud to be a part of this amazing group of people! The dedication shown by staff, volunteers, board members, clients and community supporter...s is the reason that this organization is able to provide families in crisis, opportunities to thrive and the ability to succeed outside of the sphere of abuse. The YWCA's efforts to break the cycle of violence have made an enormous impact within our community and therefore it is safer, healthier and more harmonious. Thank you to all involved with the YW. I support you all the way:) See More

The YWCA is an amazing resource in Anne Arundel County offering counseling, legal services, and the county's only safe house shelter. The staff is extremely dedicated to the agency's mission and to en...suring the safety of its clients. This is a wonderful program that has enriched the lives of many in the community and as YWCA programs continue to grow more people are able to be empowered. See More

I was at Arden house recently and I can honestly say that it was the worst experience ever... let me start by saying that when I first got there it was not very welcoming... My guard was already up be...cause was just leaving a domestic violence shelter... There was really only two staff there that was understanding and didn't treat me like a child... They did not have any resources there and they also didn't help with transportation... There was staff their that treated us like they were better than us because of the situations we were in. They rushed us to leave with no regards to how we felt or with the fact that we all just left a very abusive and controlling situation... they were not understanding because they didn't have experience in domestic violence situations... And also they rushed me and a friend out of the shelter knowing that we didn't have anywhere to go... After all this the CEO of YWCA Molly Knipe contacted me and my friend and told us that she was sorry about our experience and that she could help us and then behind our back because of personal feeling about us saying how we feel she put us on the do not except back list and one of the staff members where walking around the house staying in so glad that they're gone... I just feel like this is unacceptable behavior from a domestic violence shelter and I will be talking to the board about this behavior. See More

I was in the Arden House. It's seems like a nice place going in, but it's a different story once your in. The staff has no compassion for the women and children living there. They talk down on you and... they treated us like we were beneath them. They had no real understanding abt domestic violence and the stress it causes the families who have dealt w it . They are no help (w a exception of 2 women ). They have no resources, and have no resources or other options if your 45 days are up( which not to much can get done) they've sent women back to be homeless and had people leave because of the way they are being treated, which is a safety hazard for women if they rather go back to the person then to be in shelter and thats not good at all. I personally was sent to another place which made it harder and more Inconvient on my family just because I wouldn't allow them to talk to me like a child (that's a situation I left and didn't think I would be treated like that by a place whose goal is to HELP WOMEN. I was basically shorted on my time because someone didn't like the way I spoke up for myself. This place is retraumitizing families! They need to have people there who are willing to connect w these women and make them feel safe, and they haven't accomplished that goal. See More

I can't imagine a nicer team of staff, clients, Board, volunteers, or partners to work alongside while supporting such a critical need in the community.

The YWCA organization doing important work for women and families.. Great people . God bless you all :)

That party got cra-zyyyy! The YWCA 80’s Bash is a testament to our community’s dedication to seeing people live happy lives, free from abuse. While we can rock the 80’s with flair, we are equally unified in ensuring significant resources to provide emergency housing, legal representation, hotlines, intervention, hospital accompaniment and licensed therapy to 10,000 people annually. By raising almost $250K this evening, our guests supported both the case management services and FULLY FURNISHING the new safe house shelter (opening January 2019!). We are SO grateful to all our friends who made this vision a reality; THANK YOU! (Joseph Bissett Photography)
