YWCA Greater Newburyport
Established in 1883 to help young women gain the resources and skills necessary to thrive in the industrial world, today’s YWCA serves people without regard to age or gender identity. Today we advocate for those most vulnerable among us and implement inclusive programs supporting the entire community.
Affordable housing, preschool, and school-age childcare, wellness, cancer support, aquatics, youth leadership development, and racial justice programs are just some of the programs we offer.

We seek to integrate our mission into all our programs
Since 1885 YWCA has provided affordable housing. Today, we manage 68 units in Amesbury, Newburyport, and Salisbury. Almost half of our units serve homeless households. We are advocates of expanding affordable housing as well as fair housing.
YWCA provides a supportive environment for people of all ages to improve their health through group exercise, lap swimming, and a fitness center. YWCA Encore is a free program for those with cancer combining gentle exercise and peer support.
Our licensed program offers full daycare to infants through preschoolers. Caring professionals, using Teaching Strategies Gold Curriculum, help children learn, grow and play. YWCA provides a discount based on a family’s ability to pay.
YWCA focuses on the social-emotional development of students in grades K-3. We infuse our mission into the curriculum to expand student’s awareness of social and racial justice. Students explore a wide range of activities with experienced staff.
Swimming is a life skill that can also improve self-esteem. YWCA offers swimming lessons for all ages beginning at 6 months to adult. Jr. Breakers swim team provides a non-competitive option beyond swim lessons. Coached masters is available for adults.
