Since YWCA USA’s founding in 1858, YWCA has been at the forefront of the most critical social movements. This rich history, along with its current program offerings, makes YWCA USA the oldest, largest, and one of the most accomplished multiracial organizations in the fight for social justice. In Boulder, YWCA has evolved over the years from boarding house to social club and today is a human service agency. The organization is a non-sectarian nonprofit that is not affiliated with any religious group, and is a publicly funded, inclusive organization that welcomes everyone to participate, male and female alike.
Throughout the last century, women have come to YWCA to find housing assistance, business advice, career counseling, fitness classes, and affordable childcare. Beginning in the 1980s, community members could count on YWCA Boulder County to provide low-cost parenting classes and valuable resources to support healthy self-esteem and economic self-sufficiency. Our wide range of programs continue to provide services to those who need them.
