YWCA is one of the largest and most diversified non-profit organizations in Metro Vancouver. Their mission is to touch the lives and build better futures for women and their families through advocacy and integrated services that foster economic independence, wellness, and equal opportunities.

They focus on achieving women’s equality through their many programs and services ranging from transitional housing to employment programs, a community kitchen and violence prevention.

Danielson Group Wealth Management has had a close connection with YWCA for the past 7 years. They have been volunteering their time as a team to participate in various activities with YWCA such as gardening in the community food garden, serving breakfast to the women and children at Crabtree Corner and assisting staff at CityGate Child Care Centre with activities.
