YWCA has been leading the fight for social and economic justice in Southern Arizona since 1917.

 

Today YWCA membership is open to all people, and it has not been a religious organization for more than fifty years. YWCA’s Frances McClelland Community Center at 525 N. Bonita Avenue was built in 2007 and has become an important venue for community, educational and business groups throughout the community.
