About the YWCA 

The YWCA opened its doors in 1897 to provide housing and services to women coming to Vancouver in search of education or employment. After more than a century of experience helping women and families realize their full potential, the YWCA is now one of Metro Vancouver’s largest non-profit organizations. 

Our holistic, integrated programs and services help lift women and families out of poverty, provide the best start for children and create new opportunities for education, employment and leadership. Our vision is to achieve women's equality.  

Funds raised from Y Dance-A-Thon will go towards YWCA essential services and resources to women and their children like housing, violence prevention programs, mentorship, single mothers' support services etc.

Every year, YWCA supports over 48,000 clients and program participants. Your gift ensures that families across Metro Vancouver can connect with the essential supports they need to be safe, healthy and experience the quality of life they desire.

YWCA Metro Vancouver projects a $2.46 million deficit in 2021. This loss in revenue is a result of ongoing pandemic-related impacts to our Hotel and Health + Fitness Centre, which help fund YWCA services like safe, affordable housing, support programs for single moms and early learning and child care. Without these revenues, our capacity to deliver programs and services in future years could be at risk. 

Your donation will help us continue to serve the women and families who turn to the YWCA for connection and support at this critical time. Thank-you!
