YWCA is On a Mission

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

About

YWCA Hartford Vision: To become a community with unlimited opportunities to un-limit opportunity.

We promote change at a systemic level and through improved lives for individuals and families in our community. Increasingly, the paramount theme is for every woman to achieve economic security. YWCA pursues its mission through advocacy, programs and services. 

Serving nearly 1,800 people annually, we are helping women and girls bridge the educational, career and financial gaps to prepare them for life-long stability and economic security—and we will continue to do so by creating opportunities one woman at a time.
