Signature Programs

To uphold the integrity of our legacy, the YWCA Houston has adopted an intentional approach to creating programs and events that align directly with our mission.  We accomplish our mission by serving thousands of people throughout the greater Houston area.

Each year, we coordinate a variety of community events presented as our Y-SHE CAN SERIES to educate women on various topics and increase awareness on pressing issues facing women and girls such as: STEM education, housing, civil rights, fair wages, sexual assault,  prevention, health awareness, youth leadership development, self-image, race relations, citizenship and civic engagement, and more.

The goal is to educate, train, and empower the community to make a social impact so women and girls can lead a successful career and life.



If you would like to partner with the YWCA Houston as part of our Y-SHE CAN SERIES by presenting a workshop or bringing awareness to the community, please contact Program Manager Ashley Cotton-Martin at, to create partnership.
