For more than 100 years, the YWCA based in Fort Wayne and serving six counties in northeast Indiana, has given voice to the concerns of women and provided services to meet the changing needs of women and their families. A nonprofit organization, the YWCA operates Indiana’s oldest domestic violence shelter, which has become a model for other shelters throughout the state. Pursuing the dual goals of eliminating racism and empowering women, the YWCA also strives to offer programs that create opportunities for women’s growth and leadership. The YWCA welcomes the interest and participation of both women and men committed to this vision. The organization receives support from individuals, foundations, corporations, and other groups, as well as community funding through the United Ways of counties in its service area.
