The YWCA endeavors to empower women and eliminate racism, and provides critical social services to over 100,000 youth, families, and seniors from multiple sites throughout Los Angeles.
Before assuming her position with the YWCA Greater Los Angeles, Faye Washington had a successful 32-year career in the public sector in management, personnel administration, legislative and policy development, strategic planning, and budget formulation and implementation.
