The YWCA Evanston/North Shore is the only comprehensive residential domestic violence service provider in the
northeastern Chicago metropolitan area. Focusing on immediate responses and long-term solutions to domestic violence, services are multi-faceted and each fills a critical need in helping women break free from violence, heal and go on to lead self- sufficient lives. Reaching over 800 women and children annually, services include:
- crisis intervention
- emergency shelter
- community-based services
- legal advocacy
- financial literacy training
- relationship violence prevention
- community outreach and education
Access to services, counseling, and legal advocacy make a real difference in survivors’ ability to safely break free from violence, heal from abuse and lead self-sufficient lives. For survivors in our 16-community catchment area, the services provided by the YWCA Evanston/ North Shore are critical, without them many women and children would continue to live in dangerous, even life threatening, situations.
Your gift in any amount will make a difference. Thank you!
