YWCA Labyrinth Outreach Services to Women offers reintegration services to formerly incarcerated women residing in McLean County. The overall vision is to significantly reduce recidivism.
Labyrinth addresses the needs of women released from the Illinois Department of Corrections and McLean County jail who are returning to the community. We help rebuild each woman’s dignity and nurture her growth as she develops the attitudes and skills required for productive, independent living.
What We Do
Eligible clients are based with trained community members as additional support to work on personal/career goals, coaching, and personal empowerment. Mentoring includes monthly match events with all members of the program and involves a one-year commitment to the program. To learn more about our mentor program, click here.

Labyrinth House is a transitional living program for formerly incarcerated McLean County women. Residents live in a shared two bedroom furnished apartment and receive on-site support from residential counselors each evening. Residents have access to economic/employment resources and a counselor/case manager. Residents are able to increase their privilege level over time and can remain for up to two years.
Outreach Case Management/Counseling
All eligible clients meet with our case manager/counselor to complete an intake and determine their personal goals. Services are provided based on an individual level and for as long as they are needed. Outreach services include on-site support groups and skill-building workshops.
