The history of the YWCA is the history of progress in America.
Established in 1858 as a voice for women’s issues, we opened the first employment bureau for women several years later. That was only the beginning of more than 150 years of active advocacy and programming for women’s rights and civil rights.
We continue to evolve to meet today’s challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We’ve shifted to a bottoms-up, grassroots structure. We’ve launched a revitalized brand that reaffirms the mission of working aggressively for women and people of color. And we’re engaging women 18- to 34-years old to carry on the YWCA mission for years to come.
The YWCA advocacy issues reflect our mission and the values of our organization. We promote solutions to improve the lives of women, girls and people of color across the country.From lobbying for pay equity and hate crimes legislation to the increased funding for Head Start and the Violence Against Women Act, the YWCA advocates on Capitol Hill while employees and volunteers empower women and girls in our communities.

I was sleeping in my friend’s garage. It was cold. I had nowhere to take my stuff. I lost everything I had. I appreciate where I’m at [now]. I’m glad the YWCA was here for me when I needed the help.
I just needed some help until I was able to support myself again. I love it there. You feel safe. At the YWCA you know you’re taken care of.
Everybody at the YWCA is real nice and there’s a lot here for us, like classes I can do. When you’re living here you really have to do what you came to do. No holding back.
