The YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts – A Voice for Women & Girls

Tribute to Women

Candid, nice of 2 guests, laughing, happyTribute to Women 2018

Each May, YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts hosts an inspiring awards luncheon to honor a select group of women living or working within our service areas who have made outstanding contributions in their professions and communities.  This year, we are celebrating our 35th anniversary in hosting this event in our community!

Annually, we serve over 15,000 people from our Lawrence, Haverhill, Lynn and Salem, NH locations, where people know they can turn for caring, compassionate and highly skilled support.  Our services and programs model our mission of helping to foster peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
