  • Advances race & gender equity to create a more inclusive community.
  • Helps people improve their financial situations through job training & transportation.
  • Supports women and families in housing & shelter.

Our Vision

YWCA Madison envisions a community where people of all racial, ethnic, socio-economic and gender groups are valued and included, and discrimination and injustice are eliminated. To this end, the YWCA Madison provides leadership in our community to create social change for all racial, ethnic, gender and economic groups. Through YWCA programming and collaborative initiatives, individuals, families and the community at large are empowered to greatly improve quality of life.
