"The War Work Council of the YWCA of the U.S.A. is the vehicle through which the YWCA of the U.S.A. organizes, administers and reports on its war work activities at home and abroad. The War Work Council is seen as an extension of the program and mission of the YWCA of the U.S.A. and is accomplished through cooperation with existing divisions of the organization. War relief services include expansion of activities where local associations exist, organizing
work near military centers where no local associations exist and services to women workers in agricultural areas" (Smith College Libraries).
