Young Ladies Institute

YLI is an organization of Catholic Women dedicated to the Christian principles of charity and Love.


YLI was founded in San Francisco on September 5, 1887, by three young women inspired to help an ill friend.


Approximately 8500 women belong in California, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii.


Our history reflects a sisterly care and concern for each other and for those in need.


Our purpose is to help others in our organization, our church and our community.


We are an organization for all seasons of life. Some joined just out of high school, some were “Social Security age” and many in between; but we know that:When there is a need – YLI Sisters will be there.


For more information, please call the office and speak with Sue O'Connor
