YWCA Cass Clay - Eliminating Racism, Empowering Women

Our mission:

YWCA Cass Clay is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.


Our Approach

We carry out this mission through the pillar of empowerment, by helping women gain confidence as they recover from the damaging effects of poverty and violence. Each woman who comes to our door is provided with the tools needed to transform her life. Without judgment, we offer safe shelter, food, clothing, childcare, education and employment services, health counseling, and transportation assistance on each womans personal journey to independence.  

Our public childcare center, A Child’s World, is committed to carrying out this mission by providing care in an environment that supports the needs of all families, regardless of their social, ethnic or economic status. A Child’s World prepares children to make their mark on the world by providing care that will enrich their unique social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development.
