Join us at 2020 Circle

We know what justice looks like because every day, we get up and do the work.

But we don’t do it alone. Join us at 2020 Circle to learn how you can help us. When you support YWCA you amplify our ability to serve our community, and you help us fulfill our mission to change the power structures that determine the future. With your support, we will get up and do the work until injustice is rooted out, until institutions are transformed, until the world sees women, girls, and people of color the way we do: Equal. Powerful. Unstoppable.


YWCA Young Wonders Early Learning and Youth Development serve more than 600 children annually. In order to continue reaching and expanding access for all children, YWCA has launched a campaign called “Steering Success: Opening Doors to Opportunity” in an effort to purchase two new buses for YWCA Young Wonders.

Each bus will cost approximately $40,000. However, YWCA has already secured a matching gift from an anonymous donor; all gifts will be matched dollar for dollar up to $40,000. If YWCA achieves its community appeal goal of $40,000, both busses will be fully funded.

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.

Census 2020 We All Count. Everyone.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a census to determine the number of people living in the United States.

The 2020 Census is extremely important to us at the YWCA. The census is not just a headcount, it determines political representation and allocation of more than $675 billion in state and federal funding to communities each year.

Federal law protects your census responses. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics.

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.

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.
