YWCA Greater Austin

We are on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities.

We're not new to this, we're true to this

Incorporated in 1907 in the State of Texas as the YWCA of the University of Texas, we are one of the oldest women's organizations in the area. We serve over 4500 women, girls, and their families annually.  Since our inception, we have been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements.


2021 Mental Health Symposium

Shining the Light on Surviving and Thriving: We’re Not all in the Same Boat


Tuesday, October 19 and Wednesday, October 20, 2021

9 am – 5 pm CST

YWCA Greater Austin’s Mental Health Symposium will shine the light on the vast experiences of diverse populations navigating through the implications of the Covid-19 pandemic, economic crisis, racial reckonings, political conflicts, and the winter storm. Collective experiences of the last two years illuminated inequities and privileges in our society; while some struggled to survive, others thrived. Through this symposium, we will examine the implications for marginalized groups, the compounded impact on mental health, and the inequitable access to resources.
