Welcome to YWCA Cass Clay

YWCA is on a mission. We are on a mission to be a place for women and children to turn as they escape violence, homelessness, and crisis. We are on a mission to provide safety, warmth, and hope to those who need it most. We are on a mission to walk alongside each woman, support her as she heals, and remind her of her incredible worth. We are on a mission to empower her to transform her life. We are on a mission to watch her triumph as she moves from fear to freedom, breaking the cycles of poverty and violence and creating a better life for herself and her family.  

Join our mission. Change the course of her life. 


It’s an exciting time at YWCA Cass Clay – join us!

DONATIONS UPDATE

YWCA Cass Clay is grateful and overwhelmed by the community’s outpouring of generosity in donating used goods in support of women and children escaping violence and homelessness. We thank all who have donated in the past!

YWCA is now only accepting donations of urgently needed items and asks that all other used goods be delivered to our partner, Savers thrift store. YWCA donation bins have been closed. Through this approach, the YWCA team will focus on our mission of providing safety, support, and hope to families while receiving critical financial support from Savers for the items the community donates there.

YWCA’s Urgent Needs list is available Here! Other used items should be brought to Savers located at 1623 38th Street SW, Fargo. Thank you.
