Welcome to YWCA Bethlehem

Proudly working with YWCA USA and 200 sister associations to advance our bold mission in Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley:

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

YWCA Bethlehem empowers girls through TechGYRLS, LPGA-USGA Girls Golf, and an annual Pop-Up Prom Shop.  We empower women through Health Education, Economic Empowerment and the annual Week Without Violence Campaign.  We empower seniors through the Adult Day Center, Great Decisions Lecture Series and Prediabetes Education.  We promote diversity and racial equity through Children’s Reading Circles, the annual Stand Against Racism Campaign, and strategic partnerships with Bethlehem NAACP and the CACLV.
