PLEASE NOTE: YWCA Helena is unable to accept clothing donations. We suggest you donate clothing (and other items not listed here) to the Good Samaritan Thrift Store (3067 N. Montana Ave.) as they generously donate needed items to the women we serve. Thank you!

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.
