Encoreplus is a breast cancer education and referral program for women over 40. Encore Plus was created by the YWCA of the USA to reach out to all women who face obstacles to getting high-quality, affordable breast cancer screening. The program provides Health Screenings, Transportation, Babysitting, Translation, Companionship to Screenings and much more, free of cost. Educational sessions are also available to any interested agencies or individuals.

The primary funder for this program is Avon Breast Health Outreach (http://avonBHOP.org).
