Welcome to YWCA Greater Pittsburgh

YWCA Greater Pittsburgh is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization that empowers women and their families, advocates for fair and equitable conditions, and challenges social and racial injustice.

Our work dates back to 1867 when a group of caring and perceptive women gathered for prayers and to sew for the suffering families of Union soldiers. As times have changed, so has the work of the YW.  One phrase has, however, remained in the mission through the years: “peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all people.”  It is the ingenious and flexible application of this phrase that has advanced the YW over the last 150 years – and that positions YWCA Greater Pittsburgh as a relevant community organization for present-day women and their families.
