I heard about this story this afternoon while visiting Frost Valley YMCA this afternoon. I was able to find the actual article and it's pretty amazing:

The Y….MCA

So, in 2010 the YMCA officially became known as just The Y. In 1844, industrialized London was a place of great turmoil and despair. For the young men who migrated to the city from rural areas to find jobs, London offered a bleak landscape of tenement housing and dangerous influences. Twenty-two-year-old George Williams, a farmer-turned-department store worker, was troubled by what he saw.
