YWCA McLean County is on a mission

to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.

What We Do

YWCA McLean County is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families, and strengthen communities. We proudly serve people of all backgrounds through every stage of life – our youngest child care clients at six weeks old to seniors serving through RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Service). We are an inclusive organization, serving everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.

The YWCA Stepping Stones crisis hotline is free and confidential and is available 24-hours for anyone who has experienced sexual assault or abuse and stalking.

The crisis hotline is managed by YWCA Stepping Stones. A survivor's call will be immediately connected to a YWCA Stepping Stones staff member or volunteer, eliminating any waiting time.

Call the YWCA Stepping Stones' 24-hour crisis hotline at (309) 556-7000.
