YWCA Metro Vancouver is part of the global YWCA network. Its mission is “to touch lives and build better futures for women and their families through advocacy and integrated services that foster economic independence, wellness and equal opportunities.”

The YWCA Hotel and YWCA Health and Fitness centre generate revenue to support other YWCA community programs. These programs include its shelter and housing, employment services, early learning and childcare programs, mentorship programs, single mother services, and services for women and families from the Downtown Eastside.

In F2015, YWCA Metro Vancouver provided 45 programs and services to 41,739 clients in 58 locations.
