About this organization






The mission of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore is to empower women and eliminate racism. We accomplish our mission by creating opportunities and providing resources needed for women and girls to reach their fullest potential; promoting violence-free homes, schools, families and communities; and fostering racial, gender and economic equity and justice.


Domestic violence program: YWCA Evanston/North Shore operates the only comprehensive domestic violence program serving the entire northeastern metropolitan Chicago area. Counselors and staff assist thousands of women each year in breaking free from violence in their homes, healing from that violence, and achieving stability free from their abusers. Services include: a 24-hour crisis phone line, a 32 bed emergency shelter, 15 unit longer term housing for women and children fleeing violence in their homes, bilingual community-based resources providing domestic violence counseling and support for women in the community, and a court-based legal advocacy program which offers legal information, referrals, and help securing orders of protection. The YWCA Evanston/North Shore also delivers comprehensive education and outreach programming to teens and young adults focused on building healthy relationships and recognizing and preventing relationship violence and economic empowerment education for women.
