Women Are Builders.
When you support YWCA Hamilton’s #WomenBuildHamilton campaign, you are making a critical difference for women and children in our community.
Women Build Opportunities
We use our voices, our strengths, and our compassion to open doors and create space for others. Because incredible things happen when women unite towards a common goal.
Women Build Each Other Up
We use our empathy and our intellect to lift up those around us, paying particular attention to those in need. Because when one woman succeeds, we all succeed.
Women Build Hamilton
We use our passion and our expertise to help make our community better. Because we know that women are powerful changemakers and fearless trailblazers who will change the world.
Women Build Leaders
We use our knowledge, experience, and wisdom to mentor other women, helping to break ground and make space for future generations of leaders. Because we know the power of amplifying women’s voices.
Women Build Innovation
We use our unique perspectives and diverse skills to tackle complex problems. Because our collective viewpoint is valuable and can lead to ground-breaking discoveries.
Brenda’s new apartment at the Putman Family YWCA on Ottawa Street is more than just a home – it’s a sign of their independence.
“My goal is to help women and girls realize that they can be leaders and successful and still find a work/life balance. I think more female leaders equals a better society.”
“I’m a single mother – I raised my children by myself,” she said. “It’s a lot to be a mother – but it’s the best thing in the world.”
