YWCA Woman's Place works to end violence against women by providing compassionate crisis intervention, facilitating women's transition to safety and healing, and educating the community.
YWCA Woman's Place provides immediate and ongoing support for women who have experienced emotional, physical or sexual abuse. YWCA Woman's Place is unique in being the only non-residential stand-alone drop-in center in the St. Louis region where no appointment is needed and there are no elgibility requirements or fees. All are welcome without regard to age, background, ethnicity or cultural traditions. At YWCA Woman's Place women have the confidential opportunity to assess their situation, experience understanding and encouragement, and access resources helpful to them. You do not need an appointment to come by, and there is usually little to no waiting to see one of our staff members.
YWCA Woman's Place offers two locations in the greater St. Louis & St. Charles area. Our drop-in center is at 8300 Morganford in Affton, MO 63123. Our St. Charles office is located at 4116 McClay, St. Charles, MO 63304, at Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service in the Tri-County Outreach Center.
