Support the YWCA Cass Clay and Team Orange at the Charity Challenge!!!

Who We Are:  The YWCA Cass Clay empowers women and children escaping violence, homelessness and other crisis situations change the course of their lives.

Our Objectives:  Through a unique empowerment approach, the YWCA helps women break the cycles of poverty and violence for themselves and their families.

Key Programs:  We operate the largest Emergency Shelter for women and children in North Dakota and northwestern Minnesota and provide safe and affordable supportive housing for women working to rebuild their lives. Women and children who seek safe shelter and supportive services with us are homeless; the number one reason they find themselves at our door is domestic violence, followed by economic devastation.  

A woman working to escape poverty and violence needs more than just a safe place to sleep— she needs support and guidance to truly change her life. Without judgment, we offer safe shelter, food, clothing, childcare, education and employment services, and transportation assistance on each woman’s personal journey to independence.
