In 1967, Peggy Hobbs enrolled in an Art Class at the YWCA on Wayne Street. Her passion and commitment lead her from developing her art interest to volunteering at the YWCA. As the years passed her passion for womens rights, dedication to the empowerment of women, and her own personal development moved her to increase her volunteer commitment.
As President of the Board of Directors for three years, her leadership was a binding force during a time of change and expansion. In 1976, Peggy’s vision and passion lead to the YWCA opening the first shelter for women victims of domestic violence in the State of Indiana. Peggy continues to this day to support the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism and empower women.
