Bringing Community Together
We believe bringing communities together provides opportunities for support and connections for all. We know that the best solutions for equality and justice come directly from community, so we create occasions for communities to come together.
YWCA is committed to the health and safety of our staff, clients, and volunteers. Click here to learn more about our Senior Meal Program modifications in response to COVID-19.
We are committed to mitigating aging’s most harmful threats through our home-delivered meals, and senior centers. We provide community centers and safe spaces where women can network and learn to advocate for themselves and their families.

Home Delivered Meals
YWCA is proud of our partnership with Meals on Wheels to deliver nutritious meals and provide companionship to seniors. By delivering a nutritious meal, friendly visit, and safety check daily, our program combats three of aging’s most harmful threats: inadequate nutrition, isolation, and declining quality of life. YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix is the only Meals on Wheels program that serves Glendale. For more information on our program, call 623.931.7436.
At community centers throughout Glendale, seniors benefit from nutritious meals, social activities, and companionship. Our senior centers provide life-enriching outreach to our growing population of low-income elderly. We run our programs at Glendale Community Center, Glendale Adult Center, Japanese American Citizen’s League, and our very own West Valley Senior Center. Due to COVID-19 our community centers are currently closed, however, our congregate meal program is available for pick up. To learn about current program requirements, please call 623.931.7436.
RISING LEADERS IN MOTION
We have created our new Rising Leaders in Motion group to promote the mission of YWCA and bring equity awareness to younger generations. Rising Leaders in Motion is the perfect opportunity for community leaders ages 18 to 35 to collaborate on mission-driven projects that impact racial justice and gender equity.
Members of Rising Leaders in Motion will have access to volunteer, networking, and personal development opportunities and is open to anyone interested in furthering their social justice journey and make an impact their community.
On April 1st (no kidding!) at 5:30pm we’ll host an info session to learn more.
