We are for, by and about women and girls. We transform lives by providing a continuum of critical services and programs that build capacity for lasting positive change. We strive to change the underlying causes and issues that are root causes of inequality, violence, poverty and homelessness.
YWCA Halifax is Halifax Regional Municipality’s only organization that builds economic security, promotes wellness and creates opportunities for women, girls and their families by providing a strong voice and integrated services.
In 2011, YWCA Halifax established a new mission, vision, values and strategic directions. Through community consultations, participant focus groups, and extensive research, we identified four key areas of focus for the next five years. These include delivering quality, accessible developmental early learning and child care; advancing women’s economic and housing security; promoting the leadership, health and wellness of women and girls; and ending violence against women.
Established in 1874 as one of the first YWCAs in Canada, we have been promoting women’s leadership and meeting community needs for more than 135 years.
We work to establish new partnerships and to nurture those who graciously support our cause. As a result, we continue to make it possible for women and children to escape homelessness, violence, and instability and move towards a brighter future.
