At REED, we believe in doing good work, and that starts in our own backyard. In addition to the service trips and sustainability arms of Be The Good, we’ve implemented a local focus to support change in our own community.
This year, we are partnering with YWCA to support their mission of eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Each year, our team will dedicate a service day to support our nonprofit community partner, and every REED team member will also be granted additional time to volunteer on their own.

YWCA programs serve the needs of women, children and families living in Nashville and Middle Tennessee. They provide the tools needed to be safe, independent and successful in work and life while promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. They advocate on behalf of their clients and educate the community on how we can work together to eliminate racism and empower women. YWCA provides trauma-informed services and a place of safety and healing for adults, children and pets who are victims of domestic abuse at our Weaver Domestic Violence Center. They invest directly in the lives of our youth by empowering girls to be strong, smart and bold, and by encouraging boys to practice healthy masculinity, respect and tolerance. Knowing that education is the foundation for success, YWCA operates one of the region’s largest and most successful adult education and career services programs. Their programs and services are provided free of charge.
