Ways To Give

Make a difference

Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.

We recognize these three words embody what we want for our York community and who we are as an organization.

YWCA York has served York County since 1891. Since then, YWCA York has continued to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of our community. Our work is more relevant today than ever, but we cannot do this work alone. We need your support to make our mission a reality for those who need us. Today, I’m asking you to be a part of our work to strengthen our mission to build a more equal, powerful, and unstoppable YWCA York.
Together, we can

Our Work

Making an Impact

It was his freshman year of high school when Juan was referred to our Quantum Opportunities Program by his School Guidance Counselor.
Juan was in jeopardy of failing three of his classes and was barely passing the rest. Juan’s parents both worked second shift, and he was caring for his younger siblings, which took a lot of time away from his studies and homework.
Juan enrolled in QOP and slowly started getting on track in his classes. After 6 months in the program, he was passing all of his classes with a C average and a 2.2 GPA. During his Sophomore year, Juan’s grades really picked up, and he was so excited to get the report card incentive of $150.00 during his 3rd term for his grades. His GPA had risen to 3.1, and he was thinking seriously about higher education.
Juan, who is in his Junior year, still actively participates in QOP. He maintains his improved GPA and has begun applying to colleges.
