Walk A Mile

YWCA York now has a comprehensive victim services department.  ACCESS-York is a program that seeks to eliminate domestic violence and offer support, education, and a safe environment for victims of domestic violence.  As of January 1, 2008, ACCESS-York became a program of YWCA York.

As of January 1, 2009, the Victim Assistance Center (VAC) became a program of YWCA York. VAC provides crisis intervention, information, advocacy, ongoing counseling, and support to the people of York County who are victims of sexual violence or other violent crimes. VAC and ACCESS lead three countywide task forces to ensure victims of crime receive quality treatment.
