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.


Need Assistance with Rental Costs

The Relief of Emergency Needs for Tenants (RENT) Assistance Program provides up to six months of full rent payment for income-eligible Austin renters who have experienced a COVID-19-related income loss.  

Random selection of eligible applications for rent assistance will occur weekly on Fridays at 12pm through the end of December 2020, or until program funds are expended. All applications, regardless of when they are submitted, will be given equal chance in the selection process. Applications are now open.  Click the image below to apply.
