YWCA offers a full range of support services to residents of our shelter and longer-term housing as well as to those in the community who have experienced or are living with abuse. These services include:

24 Hour Crisis Line:

Our hotline provides emotional support and information and referrals 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Legal Advocacy: Housed at the District Two Courthouse in Skokie, our legal advocates assist survivors with obtaining orders of protection and safety planning, as well as with accessing other legal remedies as part of a larger safety plan. This is provided in English and in Spanish.
Counseling: Counseling in English and Spanish helps survivors and their children to address the impact trauma has had on their families, as well as to secure long-term therapeutic interventions.

Affordable Housing Support:

Lack of affordable housing is a big obstacle for survivors. We offer referrals to affordable housing programs, and assistance with applications and the coordinated entry process.

Financial Education:

Financial education and coaching enables survivors to secure greater stability by learning about budgeting, credit and debt issues, and developing the skills and resources needed to work towards independent financial futures. This is provided in English and in Spanish.
Workforce Training and Employment Assistance: We help clients secure stable employment, providing support with job readiness skills and securing job training and placement, developing resumes, completing applications and preparing for interviews. Partner Abuse Intervention Services: Alternatives to Violence is a 26-week program providing men with the opportunity and skills to change the behavior, beliefs, and attitudes that support their use of violence against intimate partners. We accept self and court-referrals and are approved by the Illinois Department of Human Services for the provision of court mandated services.
