There are many different programs at YWCA Clinton and each one of them has an incredible impact on our community. Our rehousing program helps those experiencing homelessness in our area find and maintain permanent housing to set them up for self-sufficiency. Our children's center and preschool gives children the tools and skills that they need to help them throughout their educational career. Our health and wellness programs helps community members find strength, overall health and confidence. No matter what you are looking to do, we probably have something for you at YWCA Clinton. 

With your generous contributions we plan to allocate funds to ensure that families have access to safe and reliable childcare while they work. Additionally, we aim to bolster our homelessness prevention programs, providing vital resources and support to individuals and families experiencing or on the brink of homelessness.

A donation to YWCA Clinton this Great Give Day helps to sustain our organization so that we can continue to serve our community for 108 more years!


"When I first met Veronica, she was living in an emergency shelter with her four children. Veronica did not speak English and was a victim of severe domestic violence. YWCA Clinton relocated Veronica and her children to safe housing through the Rapid Rehousing Program offered by the YWCA Empowerment Center. Ongoing case management allowed for additional barriers to economic and housing stability to be identified and a plan to be put into place to reach goals that had been set. Veronica eagerly began ESL, English as a Second Language, classes 2 evenings a week at Clinton Community College. Lutheran Social Services transported Veronica to the ESL classes and the YWCA Children's Center provided childcare in the second shift program so she could attend." - YWCA Program Associate

"In the past few months, we have had two non-English-speaking families enroll at the center. Both Yolanda and Maria are 4 years old and anxious to start preschool. Miss Katelyn and Miss Rachelle, both a little intimidated at first, have done a phenomenal job with these girls. Yolanda, who knew only a few simple phrases in English, can now count higher in English than in Spanish, knows all her colors, and uses more English words daily. Maria has been with us for less time but is progressing on the same path. Both can communicate now with their teachers and classmates." - Children's Center Associate

"I had a choice to make, pay to renew my work visa or buy my daughter a graduation dress. I was beyond proud of my daughter and hoped that the work visa issue would somehow be resolved. Unfortunately, my employer was forced to terminate my employment. Then everything began snow-balling. I was facing eviction and my utilities were shut-off.
Enter the YWCA and their Rapid Rehousing Program. They stopped my eviction, had my utilities turned back on, enrolled us in a health insurance plan, and contacted an Immigration Counselor, assisted in getting my work visa back in place and a work visa for my son. Additionally, they contacted Clinton Community College and enrolled me in GED classes and my son will be able to complete his education.
I have a good job and my case manager has taught me successful financial planning whereby I am current with all utilities and bills, have a Christmas Club account, regular savings account, AND am two months ahead in rent.
I will never be able to thank the YW enough. I am content and feeling successful because they took the time to empower me and my family." - YWCA Rapid Rehousing Graduate
