YWCA Mahoning Valley is a non-profit agency on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, dignity, and freedom for all. Formed by the 2018 merger of two YWCA entities - one established in 1904 in Youngstown, and the other created in 1916 in Warren - the YWCA Mahoning Valley has over 224 years’ combined experience providing quality services and innovative programming to meet the changing needs of women and families in our region.
YWCA Mahoning Valley is a unique organization led by women who actively seek collaborations and assume partnership and leadership roles on issues affecting women, children, and families. Programs have molded over the years to meet the needs of those we serve in our community. Our main program areas include (1) housing with supportive services, (2) childcare and youth development programming, (3) empowerment programming, and (4) racial justice and civil rights. We are focused on improving the quality of life of those we serve in our community by offering assistance to those in need and removing barriers to reduce disparities for women, children, and families.
