I Need Help

Do you have concerns about your safety? Are you unhoused or at risk of losing your housing? YWCA Missoula is here to help.

Domestic & Sexual Violence

No one has the right to hurt, threaten or make you feel afraid. We understand that you may have questions about your safety, rights and resources. Being connected to a domestic or sexual violence advocate can increase your safety and well-being. Calling the YWCA crisis line is the first step: (406) 542-1944 or (800) 483-7858.

Our crisis line staff is available 24/7 and trained to provide supportive and confidential services. We can:

  • Help you determine if you or a loved one is being abused.
  • Help you make a plan to keep yourself safe and/or leave if you choose to do so.
  • Help arrange a stay in our domestic violence shelter or connect you with other resources.
  • Answer general questions about domestic and sexual violence or discuss a specific situation.
