YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
At the YWCA Canton, we provide emergency shelter to the homeless and tools to help them get back on their feet and become self-sufficient. The YWCA Canton also provides early care and education services to children that enhance their development and prepare them to be successful as they transition to kindergarten.
YWCA is committed to the empowerment of women, but our organization is not comprised of only women — or serving only women. Our programs serve women and men and their families.
Funding for the YWCA Canton is provided by the United Way of Greater Stark County. United Way improves the quality of lives through lasting community change by supporting programs in Health, Education, and Financial Stability. The organization convenes and collaborates to support programs and initiatives that promote a community where children are healthy and successful from kindergarten to high school to career and where families have the supports, tools and skills to break the cycle of poverty to become financially independent.
