Binghamton / Broome County
The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
Since 1892, the YWCA of Binghamton and Broome County has been central to our community's landscape and was established as a safety zone for women during the industrialization of the Southern Tier. Today, the YWCA of Binghamton is home to several unique programs aimed at improving the quality of life for all citizens, including racial justice practices, residential programs, access to free cancer screeenings for low-income women, and access to quality early childhood services.
For over 150 years, the YWCA USA, of which the YWCA Binghamton is a member, has served as a beacon of light for women and girls in their search for and fulfillment of productive lives. As the oldest and largest national and international organization dedicated solely to the empowerment of women and girls, especially through an aggressive effort to eliminate racism, the YWCA USA supports social services, conducts advocacy, provides education, trains leaders, and fights for racial justice.
