Young Womens Christian Association

Group  From 1855 

From their website:
YWCA was founded in 1855 by Miss Emma Robarts and The Hon Mrs Arthur Kinnaird. Miss Robarts started organising groups for young women who were coming to London for the first time. Mrs Kinnaird opened a hostel in Upper Charlotte Street, London for Florence Nightingale's nurses, en route to and from the Crimea.
We were founded by Christian women but today our work is no longer faith-based. We work with people of all faiths and none.
