Teresa’s #AmplifyYWatx


I have volunteered for the YWCA Greater Austin for over 5 years. Its mission to eliminate racism and empower women are two of my personal values. Please join me in supporting the programs at the @YWatx that serve women and their families through counseling, teen resiliency classes, professional development and advocacy efforts.

Every dollar donated to the YWCA Greater Austin stays in Austin to empower the lives of women and their families!
