Drop off for Uber services will be located at YWCA's Chestnut Street entrance as the Market Street entrance will be closed during the event.

As we prepare for this milestone and comb through our rich history, a common theme speaks for itself. The YWCA has been a force for change, ever striving to meet the needs of our community and always seeking to adapt and bridge the gap for our underserved populations.

We are proud to continue the legacy of 125 years by improving the quality of life for all who access our programs and services. We would not be where we are today without the generous support of community-minded individuals like you.

This year, you have a unique opportunity to help us safeguard the future – not only to support the viability of our programs, but to join us in celebrating our years of service to the community.

Please consider supporting our anniversary celebration through a sponsorship to help us recognize the impact the YWCA’s mission has achieved throughout our region.

Let’s rewind to 1894 when a group of forward thinking women came together during the Industrial Revolution to create a safe space for women and girls coming into Harrisburg in search of employment opportunities. A movement was born.

125 years later, the YWCA serves more than 35,000 individuals each year. We are a fiscally responsible non-profit where 87 cents of every dollar is routed into our programs and services. We have come a long way from our roots as a noon rest room for young women. We are proud to serve this community and invite you to join us in celebrating our past and our future, while supporting a legacy for another 125 years.
