YWCA Haverhill was founded in 1891 to support women and their children. Today, we serve women, children and families from Greater Haverhill providing domestic violence and sexual assault services and school-age programming for youth ages 5 to 17. A division of the YWCA of Greater Lawrence, we are an affiliate of the YWCA USA, the nation’s oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization working for social and economic change.
The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
