What We Do
Established in Delaware in 1895 as a voice for women’s issues, YWCA Delaware continues to evolve to meet today’s challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We are On A Mission to work tirelessly for women and people of color, improve lives and strengthen communities in three signature areas where we can have the most impact:
We provide programs that move families from homelessness to emotional and economic self-sufficiency.
Hope and Healing
Services are provided to survivors impacted by sexual assault and/or domestic violence
Home Ownership & Foreclosure Prevention
YWCA helps families battle back from traumatic events that impact their economic well-being such as job loss, death of a loved one, and foreclosure.
Racial & Social Justice
YWCA is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. Two programs focus on this quest. A.L.E.R.T. and Youth in Action.
