Ways to Give

Your generosity can change the lives of women and families in St. Louis.

At YWCA Metro St. Louis, we’re on a mission to empower women, eliminate racism, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. Your support plays a crucial role in realizing this vision. 

For 120 years, YWCA Metro St. Louis has served as a beacon of hope for those in the community facing various challenges, providing crisis intervention and safe housing for women who have experienced sexual and domestic violence, Head Start and Early Head Start education that supports families, and programs and initiatives that foster career readiness.

No gift is too small.  Your contribution can help provide:

  • Transportation so a woman can attend job training
  • Grocery assistance for a Head Start family
  • Childcare for a mother seeking counseling after an assault
  • Safe housing for a family fleeing domestic violence
