YWCA Dayton Culture and Values
Empowering Women and Eliminating Racism
YWCA Dayton is part of the largest and oldest multicultural women’s organization in the world; we leverage that collective strength into a unified movement joined through the comprehensive mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

Founded in 1870, YWCA Dayton lives its mission and is a champion of women and girls in three key ways: direct service programming, community outreach and education, and advocacy and public policy support. Our core services are focused on preventing and responding to gender-based violence; supporting women’s economic empowerment; strengthening women and girls’ leadership development; and advocating for legislation and policies that promote racial and social justice for women and girls.

These include:

  • Emergency shelter and crisis support services for women and children fleeing domestic violence
  • Crisis and counseling services for survivors of sexual assault, human trafficking, and stalking
  • Affordable housing and life skills training for single women transitioning to independent living from homelessness or abuse
  • Housing assistance for women and children who have experienced domestic violence and families who are experiencing sudden homelessness
  • Girls LEAD!, an in-school, after-school, and summer camp empowerment and education program for girls 11-18

YWCA Dayton continues to be a touchstone, a stepping stone, or a resting stone for more than 100 women and children, every day. We are constantly working to ensure that the Miami Valley community will always have amidst its future, a place dedicated to empowering women and eliminating racism.
