YWCA Billings is dedicated to saving and changing lives. We offer women and children safe shelter, and affordable housing with transitional services that offer a hand up rather than a hand out—helping people gain solid footing and break out of the cycles of violence and poverty. We are also committed to YWCA USA’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.
