What We Do
YWCA Alaska is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities. We are part of an international movement serving more than 2 million people in the United States and 25 million worldwide. In Alaska, our four major programs impact more than 45,000 women, families, people of color, and local businesses each year.
We connect low-income women with cancer screenings, train at-risk individuals on financial literacy, assist organizations in celebrating a diverse culture, and honor Alaskan women who positively impact our community. For additional information, please see our individual programs.
