Increasing economic opportunities for women and girls of color

YWCA supports women’s empowerment and economic advancement, with a particular focus on the reality of the way race impacts women’s economic opportunities. We provide economic empowerment programs, such as financial literacy programs for young people, and leadership development programs supporting women of color. In addition, our housing and childcare programs are strong foundations on which woman and families can build their financial futures.
