YWCA Greater Pittsburgh

Mission Statement

YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

About YWCA Greater Pittsburgh

For over a century, YWCA Greater Pittsburgh has forged a trail of leadership, advocacy, action, and results for the women and children of our community. Created in 1869 by a small group of women, the association has served as a leader and a social force for civil rights and social justice in the community.

Today, we strengthen our community by creating and advancing opportunities for all women to seek equality and self-sufficiency. Last year, we opened the door of opportunity for over 39,000 Allegheny County women and families through such YWCA programs as child care, child-care training, children and teen programs, health education, housing, and anti-racism and cultural competency training.
