Founded in 1985 through a collaborative effort by the YWCA Lancaster, the Junior League of Lancaster, and the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center, New Choices has been successfully aiding individuals in transition for over 30 years and has assisted thousands of women to find economic and emotional independence. The New Choices program is now open to men.

New Choices is FREE to the Lancaster County community thanks to funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and the Lancaster County Career & Technology Foundation.
