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 program 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.

Testimonials

"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

"The staff and teachers are like family to my girls. They are funny and kind and smart and respectful and kind. My children absolutely love them and have flourished, all thanks to the amazing teachers! They took the time to get to know them and love them as if they were their own. I have popped in at different times of day and they are always happy and cared for. I highly recommend the YW childcare to everyone! I trust them completely with my children. They are always accommodating and flexible." - Children's Center Parent

"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
