Join YWCA Bradford in Making a Difference in McKean County

Donations are a fundamental piece in providing vital community services, such as housing the homeless and feeding the hungry. All donations stay local, and benefit the very community you live in. Your support and contributions will help provide safety, stability, and dignity for others.

Our History

YWCA Bradford got its start in 1915 when Marie Brake roared into town and fired up area women to come together. She organized the Young Women’s Christian League, and “invited all interested women to live together with a common goal of the mental, physical and spiritual welfare of girls and women, whose desire it is to help, unselfishly and intelligently, all girls and women in the community.” 


Our Mission

YWCA Bradford continues to evolve to meet today’s challenges in eliminating racism and empowering women. We strive to provide safety, stability, and dignity for all.
