For more than 100 years, YWCA St. Paul has been changing minds, bodies and lives.

You might know us best for our Health & Fitness Center, but we also work to help:

  • Families to fight homelessness
  • At-risk youth to reach their full potential
  • The unemployed and underemployed to find their place in the workforce

Addressing community needs in four core areas: Housing & Supportive Services, Youth Development, Health & Wellness and Employment & Economic Development, last year  our programs and services helped more than 6,200 people to reach their goals and improve their quality of life.
