Debra M. Ward, M.P.H.Chief Executive Officer


The YWCA of San Gabriel Valley is proud to announce that we will be relocating our headquarters to a larger facility, effective February 28, 2022. The new location, still in the City of Covina, will allow us to BUILD a better, stronger, and more robust organization as we grow our staff and expand services to the 40+ cities and communities throughout the San Gabriel Valley and for generations to come!

As you may know, YWCA-SGV is a long-time resource for the resilient communities in our service areas, including neglected and vulnerable populations, providing critical services in the areas of domestic violence, senior services, food insecurity in older adults, case management, housing assistance, and child/youth development. The organization’s work spans the spectrum from outreach and prevention to intervention and direct services and also includes enrichment activities such as leadership programs for women, as well as programs and activities for teens.

I would like to express our continued gratitude and sincere thanks for all the support you have given us over the years. We look forward to a continued prosperous relationship with our donors, clients, funders, and community partners. As we get settled in our new organizational home, please look for an invite to our official Open House in early Spring. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (626) 214-9442.
