YWCA Battered Women's Shelter

battered women's shelter only.

Domestic Violence Shelter
The YWCA opened Evansvilles first Domestic Violence Shelter in 1979. We never turn away a victim of domestic violence and her children. We believe that given a supportive environment free from abuse, victims of domestic violence are capable of developing their own strengths and abilities to manage their lives and the lives of their children. We maintain a crisis line and provide safe housing, transportation, clothing, and personal care items. Our 24-hour staff provides crisis counseling, information and referrals, goal planning, and self-sufficiency counseling. A Legal Advocate provides assistance with legal issues and counseling to both on- and off-site victims. Each child is assessed by the Childrens Advocate who provides counseling, and referrals. Other services include support groups, tutoring, parenting programs, and summer day camp.

User Answers

  1. You have a maximum of 45 days at this shelter and regardless if you have housing at the end of your 45 days you are to still get out, also they run off of donations but any food donated to this shelter that the staff may like is eaten by the staff not the residents of the shelter, they also promise you many many things to make you think that they may help you with funding for a more stable place for you and your family to live but in the end they help you with no funding ,you pay for everything out of pocket yourself. The plus side of things most of the staff is friendly but they tend to talk about the families behind their backs.

    I'm not sure what the YWCA defines "not being turned away" I contacted the YWCA in October 2019 and this year on March 18, 2020. Wanting shelter from abuse. Each time I was told they had no room, I was asked to call back.
