YWCA Bucks County

Empowering women, girls and families every day

Imagine a community of empowered women, girls and families reaching their full potential through increased opportunities, education and supportive services.

YWCA Bucks County is a nonprofit organization serving women, girls and families since 1954.

We are on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities.

Across the USA, there are 225 associations that serve more than two million women, girls, and their families.

Annually, the YWCA empowers over 2,000 women, girls and families in Bucks County with programs designed to inspire women and girls to reach their full potential.

Diversity and inclusion is an important part of our organizational culture and a prominent component of everything we do.

Programs include structured support groups for women and girls, rapid re-housing, parenting education, workforce development, financial literacy, family support and stability programs, and community dialogue around gender and racial equity.

You can help to increase opportunities for women and girls to explore leadership, self-confidence, gender identity, healthy living, parenting knowledge and increase women, familial self-sufficiency, and financial independence by supporting the YWCA Bucks County.
