Mission and Vision

The YWCA Northcentral PA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace justice, freedom and dignity for all.

 The YWCA is the oldest and largest women's membership movement in the United States. Three hundred and twelve YWCAs operate across the country, representing two million women, girls, and their families.

Since its inception nationally in 1893, the YWCA has been developing services and programs to allow women and their families to live with dignity and peace.

Throughout Lycoming County and Northcentral Pennsylvania, the YWCA’s focus is on helping people build better lives. We do this via the services of our Liberty House and Wise Options programs.

The staff, volunteers and community leaders who help make the YWCA Northcentral PA an integral part of our community strive to advance and address the continually evolving needs of the communities we serve. We are a mission focused organization and strive to achieve the goals of our mission statement in all aspects of the work we do and the services we provide.
