About Us

National Advocacy. Community Action.

At YWCA, we are on a dedicated journey to provide safety, support, and empowerment to individuals marginalized by gender, particularly those facing intimate partner, domestic, and family violence. Our mission drives us to create safe havens for women and families seeking refuge from these challenges.

With determination, we empower, advocate, and support women, and other individuals marginalized by gender in Brandon and the Westman Area. We provide safe shelter free services, and resources, for those experiencing intimate partner, domestic, and family violence.

We envision a world where lives and communities are rebuilt through services and programs that forge healthier connections and opportunities.
