About YWCA of Greater Atlanta
YWCA IS ON A MISSION
Eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA of Greater Atlanta, a 501 (c) charitable organization, is a local chapter of the national organization, YWCA USA, and has been a voice for change for women and families in Georgia since its founding at Spelman College in 1902. Our organization’s foundation is built upon a history of mobilizing diverse groups of women leaders to identify community problems, advocate for solutions, and create more equitable communities in Georgia.
By harnessing the potential of every woman, YWCA brings real change to the fight for gender equality and racial justice. These are the building blocks for a world where social justice exists for all.
We address the needs of women and girls at multiple levels, providing direct services and programs in tandem with public policy analysis. Our services and programs focus on three key areas: Advocacy & Social Justice, Education & Economic Empowerment, and Health & Safety for Women and Girls.
