What We Do

We facilitate social change through direct service, support groups, community outreach and public policy. Our five foundational programs assist and nourish our diverse community. A mission to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all is cultivated through strategic application of services and support. Guided by values of empowerment, diversity, teamwork, commitment, service and respect, YWCA’s programs serve over 12,000 community members annually.

Programs

YWCA Clark County is committed to serving all members of our community who need our services. We accomplish this through:

  • Celebrating and respecting the diversity and dignity of each individual
  • Not charging for services (with the exception of select classes and workshops)
  • Providing Spanish speaking advocates in the Sexual Assault and SafeChoice Domestic Violence Programs
  • Providing Russian speaking advocates for our SafeChoice Porgram
  • Offering specific LGBTQ services in SafeChoice
  • Providing translation services for non-English speaking individuals as needed 

Special Initiatives

YWCA Clark County supports several initiatives that seek to empower women, end racism, and the marginalization of minorities in our society. We celebrate social change through all of our programs and outreach, and award community members for their work in the field of social justice. We offer community outreach programs to support you in your goals to end violence, raise awareness, and bring about social change. Our public policy work results in legislation that supports social justice and those we serve.

Community Resources

We believe that it takes a community to fulfill our mission of social change. We offer a link to news and publications so that you can access YWCA news and reports to the community. You can also find links to support groups and to  service providers we partner with in an effort to provide the best service possible to our participants. Finally, we offer room rentals at YWCA, including discounted rates for non-profits.
