Our Mission in Action
Violence Against Women
YWCA is the single largest network of domestic violence shelters and services in the country. We are committed to supporting survivors and reducing violence against women and girls.
Affordable, accessible, supportive housing is critical to women’s safety and economic empowerment. We help women gain independence and build self-sufficiency.
Women & Girls Leadership
Girls with confidence become women of influence. We empower girls to grow in strength, courage, and wisdom -- and then celebrate the powerful women they become.
Social Justice Advocacy
Women cannot be free if one among us is not free. We advocate for an end to inequality and discrimination against women in every sphere — economic, political, and social.
