Welcome to YWCA Lincoln!

• The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
• The YWCA is where women turn to join a dynamic community united by a passion for positive social change, racial justice and economic empowerment.
• We work to influence public policies on behalf of women and people of color.
• We speak out on behalf of women and girls and what they face today: racial, ethnic and gender disparities; domestic violence and sexual assault; a lack of affordable childcare and after-school programs; the urgency for job training in a struggling economy; the shortage of transitional and low-cost housing; and the high cost of health care.

  • Volunteers Needed: Mother Daughter Circles

    YWCA Lincoln is excited to announce a new program, Mother Daughter Circles within the Sudanese Community. Mother Daughter Circles provides mothers and daughters the opportunity to strengthen their bonds through shared listening, creative expression, and skill building. Mother Daughter Circles promote empathy, communication skills, stress reduction, setting limits and honoring boundaries, exploring meanings and messages about female identity, identifying relationship accountability, and experiencing affirmation together and within their broader female community.

    Volunteers are needed to provide meals for families attending the circles meetings. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Andrea Curtis for more information.
