You won’t want to miss this year’s Great St Paul Get-Together on May 26. What’s better then a butter princess or a stroll through Machinery Hill? How ‘bout sampling some sweet fare while getting a taste of YW’s work? This year’s Sweet Success event won’t feature a Ferris wheel or anything on a stick, but it does promise to be an inspiring gathering!

Financial assistance paired with guidance and support from YW staff helped Lateasha—YW’s 2021 Sweet Success honoree—create a clear path forward from a situation that felt hopeless.

YWCA St. Paul has been working for racial and gender equity for more than 110 years. 

Our programs advance racial equity by helping low-income individuals and families—especially women and youth of color—overcome barriers to access and achieve success in areas characterized by significant racial disparities.

In 2021, our social services programs served more than 1,140 families. Nearly all (97%) were categorized as low-income and 96% of these individuals were people of color. Nearly three-quarters (74%) of our participants were female.
