Documents concerning YWCA of the U.S.A. associations in Hershey, Hollidaysburg and Johnstown, Pennsylvania. The purpose and functions of the associations are established in their constitutions and bylaws and further information about the status of the association is tracked in fact sheets and administrative notes. Records and correspondence indicate that the associations in Hershey and Johnstown dissolve due to interest or financial reasons. In Johnstown the YWCA merges with the YMCA to form a join YW-YMCA.
