Biographical/Historical Note
On June 21, 1883, the Women's Christian Association of Rochester, forerunner of the Young Women's Christian Association of Rochester, was founded to provide respectable boarding homes for employed women. As there were 7000 self-supporting women in Rochester at the time, the wholesome surroundings of a Christian home for these women was the Association's first consideration. A secondary concern was the formation of Bible-classes, classes in cooking, sewing, writing, arithmetic, and English. It was in 1903 that the chapter groups of the Young Women's Christian Association formed into a national association, and in 1906, the Women's Christian Association became affiliated with the Young Women's Christian Association.

Inauguration of a comprehensive program by the new YWCA was made possible by a large contribution by Mrs. Henry Alvah Strong. This donation of $75,000 provided the YWCA with a new administration building including offices, a gymnasium, club rooms, lecture rooms, and a swimming pool. An addition of two residential floors was made to the administration building in 1917 through a gift of $49,000 by Henry A. Strong. Their current building at 175 Clinton Avenue, built through funds secured in a building campaign drive between 1947 and 1949 and dedicated in 1951, replaced the original administration building and other structures acquired by the YWCA.

In 1961, the name of the Association was changed once again from the YWCA of Rochester, New York, to the YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County. This change was the result of the decentralization of YWCA programs and efforts to include many of the towns in the county outside Rochester. Among the programs carried on by the YWCA were Day Camps for young adults, wartime emergency programs (all-night food service for girls in industry), the "Homemaker's Holiday" (a morning program for women, particularly mothers and their pre-school children), World Fellowship Observance, area programs for teenage girls and homewomen, post-war programs in the form of clubs and English classes for the incoming wives of service men that had been overseas, and many physical fitness programs (figure trimming, Danish gymnastics, various forms of dance, swimming instruction, tennis, badminton, roller skating, volleyball, and bicycling). By the 1980s and 1990s, the focus of the YWCA's programs had shifted to providing underserved populations in Rochester with the resources to find jobs, summer programs for their children, and preventative health care, as well as programs to combat domestic violence and raise awareness about safety.
