YW Store Wish List

The YW Store is an onsite shopping mart exclusively serving clients of YWCA Dayton, especially those living in our single-room occupancy housing units. Organized by students in the Youth Works program in 2015, it provides basic necessities in-house and eliminates the need for external transportation to purchase such items, which often presents challenges of safety, time and funds. Items found in the YW Store are also used to help women as they transition into permanent housing.
