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 the seniors served through our home care services. We are an inclusive organization, serving everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.
