The mission of the YWCA of San Diego County is to empower women, children, and families to break the cycle of domestic violence and homelessness, and achieve self-sufficiency. Through Becky’s House®, Passages and theCortez Hill Family Center, the YWCA provides extensive services including safe housing, a 24-hour domestic violence hotline, counseling, legal assistance, employment support, financial literacy training, and engaging children’s programs to more than 6,000 individuals each year. The YWCA is committed to helping families recover from trauma, improve their economic status, find permanent housing and ultimately transform their lives.
Funded by individuals, corporations, foundations, and government, the YWCA relies on financial support from the community to provide a safe and nurturing environment for women and families.
“For more than 100 years, the YWCA has been committed to helping families facing dire conditions — women and children living with domestic violence and families living on the street— to find permanent solutions to their challenges and regain their power. We believe our role is to help our clients discover the cause behind their situation and help each individual identify the best course of action to achieve a stable, independent, and successful future.”
