Our Services


Most YWCA services are available by phone and video, although providing services in person remains an option when needed. Pre-scheduled, in-person services for the YWCA’s domestic abuse shelter and Nurse Examiner Program are available.

Pandemic Protocols: The YWCA prioritizes the health and safety of the survivors and families we serve, our staff, partners, and community. We support the use of approved COVID-19 vaccines. We also understand that not all individuals are able to or comfortable being immunized. Balancing health, safety, and confidentiality related to medical conditions and choices, the YWCA currently continues to adhere to social distancing protocols.  All individuals are required to wear masks when on-site regardless of vaccination status.

The YWCA West Central Michigan inspires hope and healing. Where racism and sexism give rise to domestic and sexual violence, we transform lives with expert services for victims, education to end those things that fuel abuse, and public policy that translates our mission into law.

With respect for the fullness of each person’s identity and the multiple facets that make up the whole of one’s experience, the YWCA’s staff work together to seamlessly connect those who come to us to the range of services they need.

Unless it is noted next to a specific service, a court-order or referral is not required in order to find the help you need here.

If you are in immediate danger or feel unsafe, call 911.
