YWCA supports women’s empowerment and economic advancement, with a particular focus on the reality of the way race impacts women’s economic opportunities.
Our Economic Prosperity programs, such as job training, financial literacy, salary negotiation, and leadership development serve hundreds of women in South Florida.
YWCA South Florida’s job is to imagine, fight for, and create a more socially just world for the next generation of young women and prepare them for that future.

Covid-19 Updates to YWCA South Florida's Economic Programming
With a shift in our economic needs, YWCA has responded accordingly to help our clients get the information needed through the most available medium. We are calling all of our clients on a regular basis to engage them, provide a social connection to reduce emotional economic decisions, and determine their financial needs to help connect them with resources in the community.
Our Economic Empowerment Coordinator is available Monday through Friday from 9am – 4pm via phone and email at Community@ywcasouthflorida.org
