Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the status of the YWCA in Urbana, Ohio and the program, administration and management of the YWCA of Van Wert County. The YWCA of Urbana has origins as part of the YWCA of Springfield, Ohio. Correspondence indicates that due to difficulties in maintaining committed adult leadership their Girl Reserve program is unable to make financial commitments to the Springfield association and seeks alternative means of registering their club. The administrative history of the YWCA of Van Wert County can be tracked through the iterations of constitutions and bylaws in addition to association fact sheets. Visitation reports describe and assess the association's program, leadership, activities, facilities and services. Other documents include lists of professional and volunteer leadership, industrial department visitation reports, completed residence and finance surveys, correspondence concerning the YMCA and advisory correspondence with regional and national leadership.
