DROP OFF INSTRUCTIONS: Please leave items at the front door of YWCA Helena (501 North Park), complete a donation form (leave our portion in the mailbox), then knock on the door to let us know the items are there. If you don't see us, don't worry! - we're checking the front door periodically.

YWCA Helena provides crucial services to the most vulnerable women and children of our community. For a program that can cost thousands of dollars per month, per woman, we have been able to say “yes” to so many because of your partnership. We need your support and engagement to continue to be able to offer housing, parenting support, and treatment to those in need.

Thank you for your kindness, compassion, and generosity.
