YWCA National Capital Area is one of the oldest and largest multi-cultural organizations in Washington, DC.
Our Mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and to promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
Our Bold Goal is to ensure that a majority of women and girls across the national capital area have the resources and support necessary to achieve personal, professional, and educational success.
Founded in 1905, YWCA National Capital Area dismantles barriers faced by women, girls, and people of color as they work to develop and sustain healthy lives. Women and girls come to us in times of transition for job training and career counseling. They come for mission-based skill building programs for their families. They come in times of crisis as survivors of rape or domestic violence.
