Correspondence and reports concerning the program, administration and development of the Atlantic County YWCA. The Atlantic County YWCA was formed as a result of the YWCA of Atlantic City separating from its Northside branch and the YWCA of the U.S.A. The documents are arranged roughly chronologically within three groupings. The first, visitation reports, are narrative summaries of the program, leadership and challenges in the association. The next group covers 1956-1960 and is comprised of correspondence, notes and reports concerning the Atlantic County YWCA's affiliation and performance. The final group, covering 1952-1955 focuses on its formation, an inactive period and its relationship to the community. Throughout the documents the association's relationship to the formerly affiliated YWCA of Atlantic City is discussed as is their work to maintain an affiliated and effective program in the community despite the challenging situation.
