The YWCA is a non-profit organization, the first of which was founded in the UK in 1858. Local and national associations are located worldwide, each with differing aims and methods, but all providing programs for women based on the perceived need in their communities. The umbrella organization for the national associations is the World YWCA, based in Geneva, Switzerland. The YWCA no longer stands for Young Women's Christian Association as their staff and the people they serve are not all young, women, or Christian. The acronym has been kept to maintain brand equity. The services provided at YWCA locations within the United States vary greatly depending on their size and location.
