WOW Great Falls offers 16 Career and Technical Education tracks for students to explore, from vocational opportunities and beyond, promoting awareness of exciting career opportunities and addressing local and community workforce needs! YWCA is proud to be part of this event and look forward to presenting to youth from Great Falls and the surrounding communitys.

YWCA Great Falls has recently lost crucial federal funding.

Without this money, we are struggling to meet the critical needs of women and children in our community.

Every year we serve hundreds of women and children from seven counties and three tribal reservations who are fleeing domestic violence or coping with the aftermath of sexual assault. This includes urgent needs such as emergency shelter and food at our Mercy Home along with legal, financial, and personal advocacy. We also provide vital counseling and support for those coping with the long-term impact of domestic violence, sexual assault, trauma, PTSD, and more.

MAKE A DONATION!

Your support means we can help our most vulnerable citizens in their most desperate times. Please donate so we don’t have to turn away any woman or child in need.

Protect the vulnerable

It is our Mission at the YWCA to ‘Empower Women’ and we need your financial help to continue to provide programs such as operation of the Mercy Home – a temporary shelter for women and their children victimized by domestic violence and or sexual assault, a 24 hour 7 day a week crisis line with a Victim Advocate trained to provide hope and assistance to those in need.
