Our Vision

YWCA Elevator Speech Image

We work to accomplish two important community and social goals: Eliminate Racism and Empower Women.

In partnership with diverse stakeholders in the Capitol Region of Louisiana, the YWCA has historically worked to ensure that women and children from low-wealth and economically challenged communities have better access to economic opportunity through programs designed to provide affordable childcare, address the spread of HIV/AIDS, prevent teen pregnancy and train women for a competitive workforce.

​Through collaborative relationships with local businesses, public and private organizations, as well as local municipalities, we have been a collaborative leader in building community and providing opportunities for families.

​With this guiding organizational framework, we

provide direct service to the community through two programs:

  • Sisters Informing, Healing, Living, Empowering

  • Early Head Start

  • Community Bail Fund
