Our Story

   100 Years of Advocating for Human Rights   

Who are We? Who do we Serve? What Are Our Programs?



YWCA is the oldest and longest running, originally women’s organization around the world, established in 1858 in the United States.


The YWCA organization is a pioneer and remains a leading advocate of women’s rights and civil rights for all families in the United States, directly responsible for many of the rights that we have today – the right to vote, the right to work, the right to maternity leave, with so much more to do…And still on a day to day basis, supporting families with secure Child care with early education (one of the few agencies licensed to care for infants), teens in developing self- esteem, college preparation, women’s health with a bilingual (Spanish) mammogram program, family services, holiday programs and much more – with so much more to do to continue to build our community base of support…..


YWCA Harbor Area and South Bay, was established in 1918, and for over a century has continued to support women and families in the immediate local and surrounding communities. Our service area covers cities from the South Bay Beaches to Long Beach – with our main building located in San Pedro, Ca.


Our YWCA has directly and indirectly touched thousands, and continue to do so with our programs and services – Help us continue in this endeavor, by your support and commitment to the YWCA mission –
