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.

Welcome, and thank you for your support of the YWCA Cambridge!
