History: Slideshow

The YWCA of Western New York was organized in 1870 to seek out and provide for the wants of the poor of the city and to furnish a boarding home for young girls and women. The YWCA of WNY and its members have gone though changes through the decades, and they were often ahead of their time. These pictures illustrate some of our local history.


The YWCA of WNY is a United Way Agency.
