YWCA of Greater Austin
The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2 million members in 300 local associations in the United States. More important than the numbers, is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for women’s rights and civil rights in Congress.
Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of rape or domestic violence. They come for job training and career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health and fitness. They come for a variety of reasons. But they come. And they leave with a renewed spirit, new skills, and stronger lives. Today, the YWCA Greater Austin carries out its mission to “eliminate racism and empower women” with its current programs, YW Counseling & Referral Center, Generation YW, and the Continuing Education Series.
The YW Counseling & Referral Center offers mental health counseling for women, couples, and their families on a sliding fee scale; Generation YW provides prevention/intervention services for at-risk girls, and drug education classes for girls and boys; the Continuing Education Series offers training for licensed professional counselors, social workers and marriage & family therapists.
