Serving Women in Fort Dodge
YWCA of Fort Dodge
Established in 1909
We are state licensed substance abuse treatment facility,
Which functions to provide a clinically managed residential treatment for women and women with children.
Substance abuse is a life-threatening medical condition. Untreated, those who suffer this illness will die: they will overdose; they will develop cancers of the liver, pancreas and urinary tract.
The Young Women's Christian Association (YWCA) of Fort Dodge has been in existence since 1909, and at its current location since 1914. The three-story building was originally designed to house permanent and transient women.
YWCA Offers Following Services To Women and Women with Children
I have developed as a sober healthy, woman with help of the YWCA. I now have fighting chance to make it in this world, and I owe much of that to the YWCA Center for Life Empowerment.
Being at the YWCA Center for Life Empowerment,, I’ve learned the amazing person, woman, and mother that I am. I’ve gained absolutely amazing bonds and friendships with women.
