About the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley
Established in 1905 to advocate for young women migrating to Pasadena and entering the workforce, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley, an independent 501(c)(3), has been a pioneering voice in its fight for racial, economic, and gender equality for over a century. From our pre-1920 racial integration plan to the early 1970s founding of the nation’s first Big Sister program and the area’s first rape hotline, the YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley has long been on the cutting edge of responding to the needs of women.
Our mission is “eliminating racism and empowering women.” We serve over 1,000 community members annually in the Pasadena area, with special emphasis on low-income communities, women, youth, and minorities.
