Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
Eliminating racism. Empowering women.
For more than 75 years, YWCA NETN and SWVA has worked for the good of our community, turning on the lights and opening our doors to answer the cry for justice. Today, we stand as a powerful voice against racism and prejudice, organizing community events and promoting diversity and inclusion. We provide quality, affordable childcare so families can pursue their studies and careers - so they can support their households while knowing their children are learning and well taken-care-of. We provide free after school STEM enrichment, mentorship, and evening meals for young, at-risk girls. We provide support to teen parents to enable them to complete their education, reach their goals, and be the best parents they can be. We provide advocacy for victims of crime. We meet them where they are and support them when they need it most. We know what justice looks like because every day, we get up and do the work.
But we don't do it alone.
Our power comes from the women, girls, and families we serve, and it comes from our bold, passionate donors and sponsors who are equally committed to the work of justice. When you support YWCA you amplify our ability to serve those who need us, and you help us fulfill our mission to change the power structures that determine the future. With your support, we will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable
