The Center for Public Policy Priorities states “the future of Texas depends on the health, education and financial security of all our children—across gender, neighborhood, income, race and ethnicity.” Matter of fact, the Center emphasizes that Texas “consistently ranked among the worst states for child well-being.” That’s not good enough for us! With a commitment to educate women, children, and the community, the YWCA of Houston is on a mission to eliminate barriers of access to quality childcare. When we remove barriers to quality childcare, we help women achieve educational and employment opportunities.
Children from 3 to 11 years are provided age-appropriate activities in the learning center located on Southeast Houston Community College campus. We support mothers/parents as they achieve their higher educational goals by providing a licensed early childhood development center on the campuses of vocational institutions, community colleges and universities throughout Houston.
