YWCA Monterey County

Mission

YWCA Monterey County is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

The Big Idea

The pandemic increased urgent needs for many individuals in Monterey County and YWCA Monterey County was there to help face that challenge. Whether it be hunger, homelessness, domestic violence or human trafficking, YWCA is there to help clients emerge from challenges with justice and dignity. This year with the increased need, YWCA’s Big Idea is to expand its efforts to help more people affected by the pandemic, including those facing food insecurity, financial instability or lack of housing.

I really appreciate your help; it's been a confusing and stressful time. I am trying to stay positive. Having someone thinking of us and checking in on us is important. The therapy services really helped me by giving me someone to talk to who will listen non-judgmentally and provide resources. The assistance with my bills has been a blessing that I hope to repay someday. I am ready to move forward and try to remember my goals when I feel overwhelmed. Thank you for continuing to support me through this.
