The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2.6 million members and participants in 300 local associations in the United States.
More important than the numbers is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for both women’s and civil rights.
Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of domestic violence. They come for career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and wellness. They come for a variety of reasons. But they come. And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives.
