YWCA McLean County is on a mission

to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

What We Do

YWCA McLean County is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. We proudly serve people of all backgrounds through every stage of life – our youngest child care clients at six weeks old to seniors serving through RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Service). We are an inclusive organization, serving everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.

For more than 20 years, YWCA McLean County Stepping Stones has met the needs of our community by establishing strong foundations with community partners and utilizing all resources available – large and small.

With continued growth of the program, staff, and number of clients, an accessiblesafe and confidential space is essential for the continuity of our services. This expansion brings increased confidentiality, program privacy, and the opportunity for all to operate in a comfortable, functional environment.

Are you ready to unlock your inner strength? This summer, we'll explore the concept of finding and harnessing our own unique abilities.

Campers will participate in activities including gardening, arts and crafts, cooking, and physical activities. We'll learn about the power of positive thinking, creativity, and self-confidence, and create our own personal mantras to help us tap into our inner strength. They'll also learn about the power of communication, resilience, and perseverance, and discover how to use these skills to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

Join us on a journey of self-discovery and unleash the power within!
