Serving the Community for 92 Years
Friendly House was funded “for the educational, social and family betterment of residents of the City of Worcester.” Friendly House/Settlement House (multi-service center) works with entire families both nuclear and extended, as an integrating force for the families and the Neighborhood(s) it serves. Friendly House provides a continuum of comprehensive coordinated neighborhood basic services to inner-city families.
For over 98 years, Girls Inc. of Worcester has been serving girls ages 5-18 in Greater Worcester by providing research-based curricula, delivered by trained professionals. We equip girls to lead healthy and physically active lives; achieve academically; manage money; navigate media messages; and discover an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math. Last year we served over 1,800 girls through our facility based and outreach programs. We encourage and inspire girls to challenge themselves to learn, grow, and be an effective part of our community.
Worcester Youth Center
Not just a place to go, A place to go further
Since 1994, the Worcester Youth Center has provided a safe space for education, health and recreation programs for inner city youth. The only free teen “drop-in” center with structured programs and support groups in Worcester, it serves more than 900 young people ages 14 to 24 each year, and nearly 400 are regular participants in its leadership and practical learning programs. The Center registers more the 15,000 visits a year.

The YWCA is the oldest and largest multicultural women’s organization in the world. Across the globe, we have more than 25 million members in 122 countries, including 2.6 million members and participants in 300 local associations in the United States. More important than the numbers is our mission to eliminate racism and empower women. We provide safe places for women and girls, build strong women leaders, and advocate for both women’s and civil rights. Women come to us in times of crisis, as survivors of domestic violence. They come for career counseling. They come for childcare. They come for health…
