The Mission

YWCA YORK IS DEDICATED TO ELIMINATING RACISM, EMPOWERING WOMEN, AND PROMOTING PEACE, JUSTICE, FREEDOM AND DIGNITY FOR ALL.

We are proud to be an anti-racism, gender-inclusive Association where everyone can be a member, an employee or serve on our Board of Directors and Junior Board. YWCA York employs mindfulness practices designed to build resiliency in our staff and those we serve.
