It’s International Women’s Day and I can’t think of a better time to write about the YWCA in Cambridge, MA.
You may think of the YWCA as a gym, but it’s actually a nonprofit that does so much more!
The YWCA Cambridge is an institution in Cambridge and Marshfield, a cornerstone for providing safe, affordable accommodations for women and families and an advocate for human rights.
With 103 units of single room occupancy housing for single women and a 10-bed shelter for homeless families, the YWCA is the city’s largest residential housing provider for women.
Our Marshfield Branch, offers a reasonably priced summer day camp program to families in Marshfield and the surrounding communities.
The YWCA Cambridge is dedicated to eliminating racism empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
As far as health and wellness:
Boston Classical Soo Bahk Do, a Korean martial art, has recently become a YWCA Cambridge program. The main building hosts classes in Tai Chi, Latin Dance, Pilates, Gyrotonics, and more!
When my baby is a little older, I’ll get a sitter and sign up for a workout class.
Since I’ve worked in fundraising for nonprofits for over 10 years, I love when I can support other nonprofits and get a workout at the same time!
