It’s an exciting time at YWCA Cass Clay – join us!
SEE THE CHANGE – TOUR YWCA’S EMERGENCY SHELTER
See how lives change at YWCA Cass Clay. Learn our approach to ending the cycles of domestic violence and homelessness. Hear about programs that heal women mentally, physically, and spiritually. Learn about plans for the future! Embark on a 50-minute onsite tour for up to 15 people, which may be combined with a service project at the shelter. In order to maintain the confidentiality of women and families staying at the shelter, children under the age of 18 may not attend this tour.
