The YWCA empowers women, girls and our community through leadership development, advocacy, and the provision of relevant programming and services.

Strategic priorities for 2015-2020:

  • Programs and services that advance the rights and freedoms of women and girls with a focus on respectful relationships, domestic and sexual violence.
  • Foster leadership development and advocacy.
  • Provide, develop and advocate for a continuum of suitable emergency and transitional housing as well as affordable housing.
  • A sustainable organization respected for exceptional people and service provision; supported by robust social and community investment.
