The Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The YWCA expanded, and it began operating a boarding house and an employment bureau to help women find jobs.
The YWCA was founded in England in 1855 with the goal to provide social and spiritual support for young women. Other early projects included raising funds for playgrounds and opening a hostess house in connection with Camp Bowie.

The YWCA was involved in the organization of Hi-Club and Beta Alpha Rho in the 1920s and 30s. On August 2, 1907, YWCA Fort Worth was chartered making in the first YWCA in the state of Texas.If you have problems in Houston then you'll likely have problems anywhere.
