What Makes YWCA Monterey County Distinctive?

The YWCA is the only agency in Monterey County proving a full range of prevention, intervention, education, and support services for women and children survivors of domestic violence. We also provide shelter and legal support services for those fleeing from human trafficking. We strive to make our services effective, culturally appropriate, and trauma informed.

Our Programs

The YWCA-MC operates a confidential 24 hour hotline and two full service residential emergency shelters, legal advocacy assistance and court accompaniment, trauma therapy for adults and children, and teen dating violence prevention workshops. Because domestic violence is a community concern and public health issue, we also provide comprehensive training for first responders, child protection workers, law enforcement agencies, and victim advocates.
