The YWCA-NYC Celebrates 150 Years
Date:6/10/2008

NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- On June 11, 2008 the YWCA-NYC kicks off a year-long celebration commemorating its 150th Anniversary as a pioneer and leader in the empowerment of women, girls, and their families. To mark the June 11th kick-off, the organization will host a huge birthday gala at Gotham Hall presented by YW's official 150th anniversary sponsor, UBS, and hosted by NBC4 meteorologist Janice Huff. Also that evening the Empire State Building will illuminate the New York City skies with the YW's signature color orange.

The YWCA-NYC was the first YW in the U.S. and is one of the oldest and largest membership organizations in the world, connected to a worldwide network of sister YWCA's that serve 25 million women in more than 100 countries. Today's YWCA-NYC operates affordable, high quality childcare centers in Manhattan, Staten Island and Brooklyn, as well as after-school programs in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. It is also a leading force for women in need of a job thanks to its job-training program at the YW Family Resource Center in Hell's Kitchen.

"The YWCA-NYC has paved the way for so many," says Rennie Roberts, the YWCA-NYC's CEO. "Our mission continues to be what we have focused on for 150 years: working to eliminate racism and empower women, and improving the welfare of women and their families who need assistance with housing, job training, leading healthy lives, and obtaining high-quality education. We have served as a pioneer in improving race relations, advancing labor union representation, and expanding women's health initiatives."
