Who We Are
We are a nonprofit organization with a rich history of 98 years of service in Hanover. Hanover has changed a great deal since our inception, and the programs and services we offer are in response to the current and projected needs of our community.
We are a service provider, a community convener, and advocates for peace, justice, freedom and dignity. The YWCA is also a partner with other nonprofits, lawmakers, police departments, local school districts, service organizations, businesses, and neighbors.
Most of all, we are our mission. Every day, we work and strive to meet the tenets of the mission: Eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
