Our Impact.

In communities big and small, YWCAs turn on the lights and open the doors to answer the cry for justice. We provide housing to families: more than 145,000 people have found security in our housing and food assistance programs. We help ensure women and girls have safe and bright futures: more than 500,000 people benefit from our prevention programs focused on sexual assault and domestic violence. We dismantle systemic racism: more than 160,000 community members are involved in programs that tackle racism and prejudice. We know what justice looks like because every day, we get up and do the work. 

But we don’t do it alone. Our power comes from the women and girls we serve, and it comes from our bold, passionate donors and sponsors who are equally committed to the work of justice. When you support YWCA you amplify our ability to serve more than 2 million women, girls, and people of color in more than one thousand communities nationwide, and you help us fulfill our mission to change the power structures that determine the future. With your support, we will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: 

Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
