 In 1957, at age 14, Carlotta Walls LaNier and eight other black students integrated Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. This act of courage and defiance became the catalyst for change in the American educational system. By ushering in a new order, the Little Rock Nine, as they would eventually be called, became ‘foot soldiers’ for freedom.  

Change for Good.

The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County has been a powerful resource for local women and girls since 1883.  The funds raised through the Empowering Women Luncheon help the YWCA provide housing and support services to over 1,000 women and families each year.

Your participation in the Luncheon will help provide shelter and support to more than 300 homeless women and children in our emergency housing—a total of 5,900 nights of shelter each year.

Your support today will also help young adults succeed with our Young Adult Services programs.
