About YWCA Toronto

YWCA Toronto is a leader and collaborator in the provision of feminist, intersectional and transformative programming and advocacy for women, girls and gender diverse people. Since opening our doors in 1873, we have been a stable and uniting force, working to improve the lives of communities facing marginalization across Toronto.

Today, YWCA Toronto programs promote equity, economic security and lives free from violence. We help women, girls and gender diverse people flee violence and heal, secure safe housing, find jobs, enhance skills, and develop confidence. We offer a range of housing and shelter options, employment and training programs, community support programs, leadership programming for girls and gender diverse youth, and family programs. We engage in systemic advocacy designed to influence policy and legislative change and push forward change in gender equity, poverty reduction and social justice.

Through our programs and services are guided by our new strategic plan, a Bold Purpose, we seek a radical transformation of society where all women, girls and gender diverse people can thrive.
