The Boston YWCA was founded in 1866 to "serve the temporal and religious welfare of young women who are dependent upon their own exertions for support." Over the years the Boston YWCA has adhered to goals established by its first executive director, Charlotte Drinkwater, to provide affordable housing, enrichment courses, vocational training, physical education, career counselling and placement to the working women of Boston. Assistance with settlement of immigrants began in 1887 through the Travelers' Aid department. Since 1970, the Boston YWCA has introduced innovative programs to strengthen diversity and eliminate racism. It has been outspoken in public policy issues such as apartheid and offered services to youth, child care for working mothers, and special training for displaced homemakers.
