Each year, 76 percent of women and children served by YWCAs have incomes below the federal poverty level or less; the equivalent of about $23,850 a year for a family of four. We work to address the unique needs of those living in poverty and strive for outcomes that increase emotional and economic self-sufficiency.

YWCA Central Massachusetts provides economic empowerment programs offering help with housing, health care, career education and counseling. We are committed to developing future generations of community volunteers and leaders who will give their time and talent to the same community who invested in them.

This program is funded in part by United Way of Central Massachusetts
