Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women

YWCA Duluth offers cradle-to-career support for women and children in our community. Since 1893, we have taken a leadership role on changing issues facing women and their families: childcare, affordable housing, career development, after-school programming, domestic violence, health, and racial and gender discrimination. Our quality programming includes Young Mothers Transitional Housing Program, Early Childhood Education Center, and parenting groups and educational resources for families.

Young Mothers Program serves new mothers and their infants by providing safe housing and family advocacy in an environment that addresses the needs of the whole family. Services include life skills programming, access to therapeutic services, childcare, parenting education, academic support for those in school, work readiness, and Circle of Security programming. The women served are ages 16-21 and are homeless or at-risk for becoming homeless, all are low-income, and many are BIPOC.

Early Childhood Education Center serves families with children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. YWCA staff advocate for the needs of each family in partnership with the school system and other partners. We utilize early literacy and developmentally appropriate curricula in addition to taking an anti-bias approach to educating children. The majority of children served are BIPOC and from low-income families. The center boasts a 4-star Parent Aware rating. Your support helps us to continue to provide high-quality childcare and wraparound services to families in need.

By providing a healthy environment,and positive supportive relationships, YWCA Duluth assists women and BIPOC in creating foundations to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their children. We are often their last stop, and your gift makes these programs possible.
