Upcoming Events:


Bras for a Cause

This event will be March 23rd, 2019 at the Metropolitan (the old Paradox Theater). It will be held from 7:00-9:00pm. We are looking for 40 male volunteers to model the bras. We would need you around 4:30 to get ready for the event. We are looking at catering but still working on who will do it. The price of the ticket for the event is $5, which will receive 1 ticket for our raffle items. The attendees can purchase more at the door $1 per ticket or 6 for $5. We are also giving survivors two tickets for the raffle and a small gift. So if you are interested in modeling these lovely bras for a great cause contact Samantha Fidler- Newby at the YWCA (816)232-4481 or by email sfidlernewby@ywcasj.org

Annual Giving 

Why Donate?

How does your donation make an immediate difference?

– A donation of $35 keeps a woman and her children safe for one night.

– A gift of $100 can offer professional advocacy and counseling services so a woman can see that she has options and a plan for a new start.

– A gift of $500 means a woman and her children have shelter and safety for two weeks while they decide their next steps.                                                                                                                        

– A gift of $1,000 would allow a family a full month of shelter so that they can truly rebuild their lives.

Every donation opens a new door to hope for a woman and her children who depend on the YWCA – and every donation of $100 or more receives a 50% Missouri State tax credit.  This means that 50% of your donation is deducted directly from your Missouri taxes owed, even if you don’t itemize deductions. 

We invite you to join us with your support. With your help, the YWCA Shelter will continue to be the place where hope starts – and where a new journey unfolds, free of fear and abuse.
