In 1888, a few determined women who didn’t even have the right to vote believed they could change our community for the better by establishing the St. Joseph YWCA. Today, more than 126 years later, we are still dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice and freedom and dignity for all – and we’re stronger than ever.

We’ve succeeded beyond our expectations because each new generation of women has been willing to courageously step in with vision and leadership. Literally thousands of women have found hope for situations that at first seemed hopeless through services provided by the YWCA of St. Joseph. They’ve also been given the courage to believe their dreams could become a reality, and help to take the first steps toward that new reality.

Partnerships in Action

We work alongside several local businesses and groups each year to fulfill our mission, called Partners in Action. As our founders knew in 1888, we’re better together. All of our lives and futures are changed for the better when we help women and families reach their goals and find new hope for their future.
