YWCA of the U.S.A. residence programs have a history in the beginnings of the movement and as women gain more freedom the YWCA of the U.S.A. residence programs continue to operate and serve women. In 1959 a workshop for residence program staff assesses the residence programs, their role and functions in the YWCA of the U.S.A. and its local associations. The workshop report provides a summary of its sessions. Also included are planning committee minutes and pre-workshop materials to participants. An earlier study of residence programs collects statistics on existing residence programs and their use and the results are published in two articles in separate issues of "YWCA Magazine." Additional materials include lists of residence programs and directors, a residence director job description and program standards and guidelines.
