Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The main goal of all YWCA Bergen County programming is to improve the lives of women and girls throughout Bergen County.

All programming falls under one of our five pillars: Economic Empowerment, Racial Justice, Women’s Health, Youth Development, and, Violence Against Women. We maintain long-standing programming (such as child care) while implementing new initiatives, such as Empower U(university), a mentoring program, to meet the ever-changing needs of women and girls.
