Economic Empowerment

Women in the community can access various types of support through the YWCA Mount Desert to achieve economic empowerment.


  • Safe and low-cost housing, which is often a life saver for a woman in transition
  • Sponsorship of events designed for women to market the handcrafts they have created
  • Help in funding educational opportunities for traditional and non-traditional students 
  • Programming to develop money management skills
