YWCA Billings has been saving, changing and improving the lives of women and children for more than 115 years. Our umbrella of Transitional Services help people transition from violence and poverty to having jobs and living independently.
Victims of domestic violence are often unemployed and living in poverty, and find it difficult to escape their violent relationships. YWCA augments safe shelter with case management so victims can obtain skills training, find jobs and housing, and forge a brighter, stronger future.
YWCA’s on-site legal support for victims of domestic violence and others who qualify for YWCA programs is provided by an
attorney with specialized knowledge of domestic violence and civil law issues that affect YWCA clients.
Apartments on the YWCA campus house low-income families with rents based on a percentage of area median income. Services are provided at no cost to residents to help them obtain job training and financial counseling to give them the skills and confidence needed to become independent and remain safe.
