Mission Statement

Eliminating racism, empowering women -- it's what we are about and what we intend to do.

Our formal mission statement is:

The YWCA USA is a women's membership movement nourished by its roots in the Christian faith and sustained by the richness of many beliefs and values. Strengthened by diversity, the YWCA draws together members who strive to create opportunities for women's growth, leadership, and power in order to attain a common vision: peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all people. The YWCA will thrust its collective power toward the elimination of racism, wherever it exists, and by any means necessary.

Description

The ywca lake county has been a viable resource for women, girls and families since 1922. What began in Waukegan as a residence for young women has evolved into a countywide organization that serves thousands. Our mission and purpose has remained the same over the years; however, our programs have developed to reflect the changing needs of the community.

Today over 22,000 residents benefit annually from relevant YWCA core programs:

  • Women's Economic Advancement: Education and Training
  • Women and Girls' Health
  • After School Programs
  • Youth Leadership and Development
