During World War I, 1914-1918, the YWCA was a focal point for war workers, their families, service men and women, adolescents, and other members of the community experiencing difficulties and seeking assistance. Today, the YWCA remains dedicated to improving the quality of life for women of all ages, faiths and races, and their families. We serve 52,000 women and families every year with programs to end homelessness, create jobs, care for children and youth, and prevent violence. The YWCA works with women in need to address multiple challenges and move toward independence, self-sufficiency, safety and dignity for them and their families.
