YWCA Greater Cincinnati

Our mission: The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.


Maya Angelou's words have been inspiring us for decades. She especially inspired us when she spoke at our Career Women of Achievement event in 2000. With her recent passing, her words have become uniquely poignant and compelling. Many of her quotes are well known, but perhaps less familiar are her tweets. Yes, she did join Twitter in 2010 and her 255 tweets have been compiled and they too deliver profoundly moving sentiments.

"A woman," she said, "is careful with judgment, is courteous, has courage and is much given to kindness, support and respect for other women." 

 Perhaps, in fact, this was written specifically for the YWCA, As an organization wit ha credo that encourages women to lift as they climb, we consistently support each other with courage and kindness. We approach our mission, to empower women and eliminate racism with purpose and passion, while commanding respect for all people in our community. Click here to view our Annual Report and learn more about the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati 

YWCA Fitness Center, managed by TriHealth, is a COED, downtown facility.   
Although we offer comprehensive health and fitness programs, we are not the typical gym. Our focus is on providing our members with personal health services in a non-intimidating, modern and clean facility. 

Gift Certificates Available!
