Eliminating racism. Empowering women. Right in the heart of Central Square, Cambridge, MA.
We are dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA Cambridge is a 501(c)(3) organization co-located in Cambridge and Marshfield, MA, whose mission is “eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.” As a YWCA USA chapter, we accomplish this through direct-service programming and community-based advocacy work. We offer housing assistance for 103 self-identified women in our Tanner Residence; a safe haven for 10 homeless families at our Family Shelter; a leadership and empowerment program for 8th grade girls in Cambridge; and a traditional summer day camp at our Marshfield Branch.
In addition, we provide space for community groups to thrive in the heart of Central Square and serve as a welcoming place for women of all ages to find shelter, support, and opportunities to learn and grow.
