YWCA of Houston has a 110-year legacy in the Houston community serving women and girls. It's true that both men and women live in poverty, face discrimination, and must overcome obstacles. But throughout history—in every country in the world—women and girls face additional obstacles and discrimination solely because of their gender.
The YWCA of Houston is positioned to serve women and girls in our community for another 110 years. Through our programs, we aid women and girls by empowering them to make positive changes in their lives and their communities. By providing programs that benefit women and girls, and by honoring women who make major contributions in our community, YWCA of Houston improves the status of women and girls.
