Who We Are

YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.

YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish is one of the oldest and largest nonprofits in the region focused on the needs of women, girls, and families in the community.

We are a multi-issue and multiracial organization, with programs that address both immediate needs and the root causes of that need. Our story is one of women working together across lines of difference, united by a shared commitment to social justice.  

For nearly 125 years, YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements and we remain deeply committed to working on issues of economic, gender, and racial justice.
