YWCA Stepping Stones New Hotline Number

YWCA Stepping Stones' new 24-hour crisis hotline number is (309) 556-7000. With the new crisis hotline managed by YWCA Stepping Stones, the survivor's call will now be immediately connected to a YWCA Stepping Stones staff member or volunteer, eliminating any waiting time they may have experienced in the past.

The YWCA Stepping Stones crisis hotline is free and confidential and is available 24-hours for anyone who has experienced sexual assault or abuse and stalking.

Poverty Simulation

Join in a live role-playing simulation of families trapped in poverty. We hope this eye-opening look into the impossible decisions – between food and clothing, between healthcare and monthly rent – that millions of Americans are forced to make every day will foster empathy and awareness of the needs in our community. Light lunch provided.

Suggested participation donation: non-perishable item for Midwest Food Bank.

Sexual assault is a crime motivated by a need to control, humiliate and harm. Perpetrators use sexual assault as a weapon to hurt and dominate others. Learn more here.
