About YWCA Jamestown

The economic security, safety, and health of women and families are core to YWCA Jamestown’s mission. Our services strive for social justice, in the home and the community. We provide safe transitional housing, create places to build strong women leaders, and advocate for equal rights.


Transitions Supportive Housing provides safe and affordable housing and service-enriched case management to women and children who are homeless or at risk of being homeless. The program offers opportunities for residents to identify their capabilities and develop the new skills necessary to be successful at healthy independent living.


We are more than a social services organization. We are a community of like-minded citizens coming together to create a more peaceful and just society for all–and we need your help. Join us and help YWCA Jamestown build a fearless future where all people can live free of harm and oppression.


At the YWCA Jamestown, we know we cannot do this work alone. Our power comes from the women and girls we serve, and it comes from our bold, passionate supporters, like you, who are equally committed to the work of justice. When you support YWCA Jamestown, you amplify our ability to support women in our community.


These funds will help YWCA Jamestown do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.
