Eliminate Racism, Empower Women, Stand Up for Social Justice, Help Families and Strengthen Communities.


The YWCA-NYC envisions a day when the diverse women of New York City, once seen as at risk or working poor, can sustain themselves and their families, and are empowered to define and attain their own unique goals and aspirations, contributing to strong communities, building a better New York for everyone.
