Walk-in counseling is available to women and men dealing with issues of domestic and/or sexual violence at the YWCA Monday through Thursday, from 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. and Fridays noon to 5 p.m.

Emergency shelter is available for women and children in crisis from domestic and/or sexual violence. To access the shelter, call the crisis line.

Nationally, one in four women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime. That is one in four women you know. After being raped or assaulted, navigating through the medical, legal and emotional aftermath can feel overwhelming, YWCA Missoula is committed to providing a safe place to think through those first steps to the healing process and find support. Surviving a sexual assault is not easy, but with the YWCA’s non-judgmental advocacy, survivors can begin to heal.
