As the nation’s oldest and largest women’s multicultural membership organization, YWCA reaches women in 109 countries and at 300 locations in the United States. Its mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
YWCA Tri-County Area was founded as YWCA of Pottstown in a two-story frame building in 1908. Its original focus was to provide a safe haven for young girls and women who were homeless.
Over the years, services expanded and adapted to meet the changing needs of girls and women in the community.
After moving to its current home at 315 King Street in 1913, YWCA continued to house women and girls as both permanent and transient residents, fed hungry families, and added educational programs in sewing, language arts, home nursing and public speaking, recreational teams in basketball, roller skating and gymnastics.
Today, YWCA Tri-County Area remains a leader in advocating for girls, women, and families providing quality programs and services designed to support and enrich the community.
Direct service programming includes early childhood education, before- and after-school enrichment, youth/girls’ development, and adult education.
YWCA Tri-County Area will never share your contact information with any other organization.
