About YWCA Clinton

YWCA Clinton is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. YWCA Clinton lives its mission out by providing housing resources, advocacy, and case management for victims of violence and those experiencing homelessness; first and second shift childcare and preschool programs; after school, summer, and enrichment programs for youth; health and wellness programs and curriculum, and racial justice and women's empowerment programs.


All proceeds from CNOY will benefit programs in our Empowerment Center. The YWCA Empowerment Center advocates and provides case management and access to supportive services for families and individuals who are experiencing poverty, homelessness or who are at-risk of homelessness due to domestic

violence, economic hardships, and other issues affecting housing stability. We provide Rapid Rehousing resources for up to 12 months, homeless prevention assistance, financial planning, and ongoing case management for those experiencing housing instability.


YWCA Clinton strongly believes in addressing housing needs with supportive advocacy and case management services, while collaborating with community partners to assist them in gaining economic self-sufficiency. Our philosophy is to identify barriers to permanent housing and provide case management to ensure community members can maintain long-term economic and housing stability.


Our center serves as the Coordinated Entry Access point for Clinton and Jackson Counties, which means all community members access services through our intake coordinator. We help those in need access the services, eliminate redundancies, delays, or gaps in services. Clients are provided individualized services, addressing any needs and barriers they encounter as they move toward self-sufficiency. We are a vital hub in our community as we work to combat homelessness in our area.
