YWCA North Central Washington is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA-NCW focuses efforts on the most relevant issues in our community. We strive to eliminate homelessness, end racism and discrimination, and provide life skills education and job training for women and women with children who struggle with housing and earning a living-wage.
In 2008, our first Women’s Shelter was opened and began giving women in need a temporary place to stay, all while giving them the tools necessary to stay off the streets and out of homelessness. In 2011, we opened our own thrift store to provide another form of job training and education. In 2014, YWCA-NCW launched the New Bridges Transitional Housing Program for women and women with children; this program allows for up to a one year stay in order to accommodate growth in self-sufficiency.
As we continue into the future of our organization, we will strive to search for more ways to bring new opportunities to those who are homeless and underprivileged, creating more events and fundraisers to promote awareness and diversity, and continue to work with the City of Wenatchee and the State of Washington to help end homelessness, empower women, and eliminate racism.
