Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteers are vital to the success of our programs. We could not achieve our mission without them. In addition to devoting their time and talent, our volunteers become some of our strongest advocates.

Diane Harsha

Diane has volunteered with us for 18+ years, giving over 2,700 hours of her time to make the Weaver Center a safe haven for thousands of survivors. Formerly an FBI agent, her experience in high stakes situations makes her a compassionate volunteer.

Yasmine Mukahal

Yasmine’s volunteerism extends beyond her role as a dedicated member of YWCA’s Junior Board Committee. She approaches every volunteer opportunity with enthusiasm and compassion for our mission, making her one of our most valuable community advocates.

Terry Jenkins

After retiring from investment management, Terry came to the YWCA because he wanted to contribute to the community. He's an invaluable asset in our Family Literacy Center, tutoring English & Spanish speaking adult learners in all levels of math
