At the YWCA Mount Desert Island we focus on programs that empower women and girls.
Our main program is housing for women. Since 1904 we have opened our doors to hundreds of women who have come to Mount Desert Island looking for work, vacationing, or those just wanting to live in a community setting.
Throughout the year we offer children's programs, economic empowerment programs, and racism workshops.
