Our mission

ywca is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

For over a century, YWCA Carlisle has empowered our community. Since 1919, our programs pursued equity, advocated for victims, championed racial justice, and nurtured youth leadership. Today, united in unwavering commitment, our focus centers on racial justice and empowering the health and safety of women, girls, and marginalized genders. Together, we’re shaping a community where every voice is heard, every dream is possible, and every individual thrives. Join us on this transformative journey, empowering others as we empower ourselves.
