YWCA Glendale and Pasadena is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
Our purpose is to ensure the health, safety, and economic empowerment of women, children, and families and to strengthen communities to prevent and break the cycle of domestic violence.
WHAT WE DO
We provide resources and support to survivors of domestic violence and their children, and through our education and prevention efforts we empower women, girls, and families to build healthy relationships, achieve self-sufficiency, and live free from violence.
YWCA Glendale and Pasadena is a 2020 California Nonprofit of the Year. Our programs include a 24/7 Domestic Violence Crisis Hotline, a 16-bed Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter, a Domestic Violence Community Services Center, year-round Girls’ Empowerment programs focused on STEAM education and violence prevention, and a Racial Justice program focused on education and policy advocacy.
