What We Do

Even as the times change, YWCA of Hawai‘i Island continues to be a resource for women. With a variety of programs offered, the YWCA provides a woman support throughout her life—from birth to adulthood; as girl grows into a woman, the YWCA grows with her.



We operate the only nationally accredited preschool on Hawaiʻi Island for children ages 2 through 5. To give families the most flexibility, we offer full-day, half-day and drop-in options.
