Scope and Contents
Preliminary and final report of the Program Planning Study of the YWCA of San Francisco. In response to a national study and reorganization of the YWCA of the U.S.A., the San Francisco association is selected for a local study of the needs of the young women of San Francisco, the needs of the association and the economic background affecting the contributing to those needs. The final report is divided into three main sections. The first provides context and background information through population analysis and surveys of the social, religious, education, health and moral trends in the city. Next, the second section assesses the economic background and the final section assesses the YWCA of San Francisco program and services.
