Mission & Vision

Eliminating racism, empowering women -- it's what we are about and what we intend to do.

Our formal mission statement:

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


The Young Women's Christian Association was founded with proud roots in the Christian tradition. Over the years, the organization broadened its outreach and services to women and families of all faith traditions and backgrounds. For this reason, associations in the United States have become simply known as YWCA.
