YWCA Cass Clay - Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women

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!

The Need Is Great

2015 was a record-breaking year for YWCA Cass Clay. More women and children were sheltered than ever before in our 110 year history. Throughout the year, we opened our doors to nearly 1,500 women and children seeking safe refuge from violence, homelessness and other crisis. We extended our hand and offered shelter, housing, support, and resources to those who needed it most. With your continued support, we will strive to meet the growing needs of our community and provide hope to families as they
work to transform their lives. Join our mission – give now.

YWCA dONATION BINS

YWCA Cass Clay's Donation Bin program has expanded, making it even easier to help women and children in need! Donate your used clothing, household and miscellaneous items at one of our 16 bins located conveniently around town - 24/7, 365 days a year! Your used items will be put to good use, instead of in the landfill. All donations benefit women and children escaping crisis at YWCA.
