ABOUT YWCA HIGH POINT

About YWCA High Point

YWCA High Point is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities.

YWCA has been at the forefront of the most pressing social movements in High Point since 1920 — from voting rights to civil rights, from affordable housing to pay equity, from violence prevention to health care reform. Today, we combine programming and advocacy in order to generate institutional change in three key areas: racial justice and civil rights, empowerment and economic advancement of women and girls, and health and safety of women and girls.

Mission Statement

YWCA High Point is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

Vision

It is the vision of YWCA High Point to be the community’s leading nonprofit agency for empowering women, strengthening families and working toward racial justice.

LEAD in the services we provide.

PARTNER to extend and strengthen our reach.

RESPOND to unmet needs.

INNOVATE with new and creative solutions to community issues.

IMPACT current and future generations.

YWCA USA

Established in 1858 as a voice for women’s issues, YWCA USA opened the first employment bureau for women several years later. That was only the beginning of 160 years of active advocacy and programming for women’s rights and civil rights. We continue to evolve to meet today’s challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We’ve shifted to a bottoms-up, grassroots structure. We’ve launched a revitalized brand that reaffirms the mission of working aggressively for women and people of color. And we’re actively engaging young women to carry on the YWCA mission for years to come.
