Mission Statement

YWCA Columbus is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.


YWCA Columbus defies a status quo that puts women, people of color, and the underprivileged on uneven footing. By fostering dialog, providing practical resources, and educating, we promote empowerment and inclusion. We initiate systematic social change that will create a Columbus of peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

YWCA Columbus has been serving Columbus, Ohio since 1886, pushing its residents to boldly stand up to injustices within our community and passionately protect the most vulnerable among us. In 1952, our organization chose to desegregate our swimming pool - the first to do so in Columbus. Since then, we have made it our goal to give our community the gift of "going first" time and time again - creating space to hash out issues, look for solutions, and march boldly toward equity for all.

The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women (my favorite cause) and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. This is apparent in how they treat their volunteers and the women and families they house.
