A Very Special Tenant: Jessie Mary Chapman (1880 – 1981)

Miss Chapman called Old Y home for many years. She lived here for over 40 years and became the best known of the women to run the Travellers’ Aid Program. In 1969, she was named one of fourteen National YWCA Women of the Century. COMMUNITYWISE is proud to honour her vision and memory through its continued activities.
