THE YWCA OF WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS IS DEDICATED TO ELIMINATING RACISM, EMPOWERING WOMEN AND PROMOTING PEACE, JUSTICE, FREEDOM AND DIGNITY FOR ALL.
For 150 years the YWCA has been dedicated to providing services to the women of Western Massachusetts. We began by providing boarding houses for young working women. Today, service is still the heart of what we do.
Today’s YWCA delivers groundbreaking programs offering shelter, support, and self-sufficiency for the women and girls in our community. From safe places for battered women and their children to job training for young adults, the YWCA responds with commitment and thoroughness.
It’s a pledge we made a long time ago: Until women have what they need, we’ll remain an innovative and reliable source of quality services.
