How does the “Christian” aspect fit into the YWCA?
It’s part of our acronym (Young Women’s Christian Association); so it is part of our history. However there is no longer any religious connotation or requirement to our work and/or services. We are a multicultural, multi-denominational organization for both our clients and staff and we value our diversity.
