We're On a Mission

YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

We Believe Our Community Should Get the Support it Needs to Thrive.

At YWCA Clinton, we are committed to offering quality programs so that when accessed, each member in our community grows.


Each member of the community should feel included. The YWCA does not discriminate in any way on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.


The needs of women, girls, and marginalized communities should be advocated for so that peace, justice, freedom and dignity is obtainable for all.


We help members of our community find and experience safe and stable housing regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation.


In order for each member of the community to grow and thrive, they need the access to basic tools to do so.
