THE STORY:

"The YWCA feels like home. I can count on them for support, words of encouragement, and incredible resources that help improve the quality of my life. I am especially thankful for the support I've received in pursuing my dreams as an entrepreneur. I don't think that I could've gotten this kind of care and empowerment somewhere else. It's a very special place for me and I'm very thankful the YWCA is a part of my life." - from Kimberly, a domestic violence survivor served by YWCA Metropolitan Chicago

For 139 years, YWCA Metropolitan Chicago has been providing critical support and life-changing services to survivors of domestic violence. YWCA provides women the support, tools and opportunities they need to transform their lives, strengthen their families and make valuable contributions to their communities. We focus on programs and services that help survivors Achieve Freedom from Violence, Access Quality Education and Training and Obtain Economic Sustainability. Some specific programs that serve survivors include:

  • Sexual Violence Counseling
  • Career Services and Economic Empowerment Coaching
  • CONSTRUCT: training women for careers in the construction utility industry
  • Technology and skills-based trainings at our Innovation and Technology Institutes
  • Young Parents Program

Your donation today will help the YWCA continue to serve more than 150,000 women annually, including thousands of survivors of domestic violence.
