Host Your Own Event

In order to achieve social and other forms of justice, we must embrace difference and diversity among peoples through the variety of programs and services we provide. With your assistance we can continue to do so for generations to come. One of the ways in which you can help is to host your own event in support of YWCA, such as Yoga in The Park presented by The Young Women’s Community Group.
