Mission: The Young Women's Christian Association of the United States of America is a women's membership movement nourished by its roots in the Christian faith and sustained by the richness of many beliefs and values. Strengthened by diversity, the association draws together members who strive to create opportunities for women's growth, leadership and power in order to attain a common vision: Peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people. It is the vision of the YWCA of Nashville and Middle Tennessee to focus on women and girls who desire to create a better quality of life for themselves and/or their families; to achieve self sufficiency; and to increase their financial strength. The YW will also be a spokesperson for those women who have no voice. Further, we will raise the awareness concerning and diminish the incidence of violence and racism.
