Mission
YWCA Minneapolis is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and girls, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
 
Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women
Racism in our community is one of the biggest hindrances to growth. For more than 125 years (founded in 1891), YWCA Minneapolis has worked to create opportunities to overcome social injustice, particularly in matters of gender and race.
 
Support from the community allows YWCA Minneapolis to equip more than 30,000 people in the Twin Cities to create brighter futures for themselves. What it takes to do that and more is $6 million+ annually.
 
Our work serving girls and youth, women and their families inclusive of all cultural backgrounds is viewed through the lens of racial justice and gender equity.
 
We believe in the power of education, empowering our youth through leadership opportunities, and health and fitness to support the well-being of all members of our community.
