YWCA Silicon Valley is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.For more than 108 years of service, the mission of the YWCA Silicon Valley has remained steadfast: to empower women, children, and their families, and to eliminate racism, hatred, and prejudice. We continue to provide a broad range of services (Rape Crisis, Domestic Violence, Counseling, and Child and Youth Services) that transform the lives of a diverse community. Our incredible strength lies with the many staff, volunteers, donors, community members and business leaders who share our vision and passion.Our geographic service area includes all of Santa Clara County. Of the nearly 18,000 individuals reached by the YWCA Silicon Valley's programs each year, 79% are children or teens and 65% are of racial or ethnic minority reflecting our diverse population. To ensure that everyone can benefit from our programs, our services are offered on a sliding scale basis or with subsidies when available. We constantly assess the needs of the community and develop programs to help individuals and families in transition help themselves.A key part of the YWCA's vision is to enable people to move from dependency to self-sufficiency. We teach women, children, and families how to thrive and celebrate their unique strengths. And as we teach, so we learn. Join us as we help each other live, grow, and prosper.Something looks off?
