The YWCA is dedicated to providing economic empowerment programs. The Own It Financial Education Program is a four-week program that gives women and their families the skills and tools to own their financial future such as home ownership 101 and insurance 101.
The YWCA Young Women’s Forum is a dynamic setting where young female leaders and emerging professionals in the community can connect with one another, share strategies and create support networks. The last few years have featured topics such as knowing your purpose, mind and money, and being a woman for others through philanthropy.
Arizona has one of the nation’s largest senior populations, and the number of seniors is projected to triple within the next fifty years. In this state alone, about 1 in 12 people over the age of 65 are living in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The YWCA supports and participates in many senior centers and programs, including Meals on Wheels, helping to deliver over 105,000 meals and nearly 11,000 dial-a-rides to elderly citizens
