YWCA Greater Austin is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We've been at the forefront of every civil rights issue since our inception in 1907. We work to improve the lives of women, girls and communities of color through local programming, services and client-informed advocacy.

Today we carry out our mission through the programs that we have in each of our issue areas:

    • Health and Safety of Women and Girls
    • Economic Empowerment and Advancement
    • Racial Justice and Civil Rights

Builds individual and community capacity to address the root causes of gender and race-based inequity.

The Warmline is for people with emerging non-emergency thoughts and feelings that have arisen or have been exacerbated by the current health crisis and who may benefit from receiving emotional support and a space for connection. 

Offers weekly curriculum-based educational groups which work toward increasing youth resiliency, expanding knowledge about the personal and cultural consequences, and increasing feelings of empowerment and community connectedness.
