YWCA - Harbor Area and South Bay


Since 1918, the YWCA of the Harbor Area & South Bay has been an effective and needed voice on behalf of women and children. The organization was originally incorporated in 1921 as the YWCA of San Pedro but changed its name to reflect an expanded service area. During its history, the YWCA had branches in Wilmington and Torrance. The mission of the YWCA has always been to empower women and to eliminate racism. Over the years, the YWCA has responded to the changing needs of women and girls, including having started the first battered women's shelter in the area, a displaced homemaker project, career classes, and latchkey programs for children. Our YWCA offers a variety of programs designed to promote self-sufficiency, confidence, and growth. These include childcare, mentoring, youth development, family services and programs to promote women's physical and emotional health. The YWCA works hard to promote an inclusive society for all women, men and children.
