To empower women, eliminate racism, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all
Located in Downtown Rock Island, with an outreach office at Rock Island High School, the Quad Cities YWCA has spent the last one hundred years working to build strong communities that eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, and dignity for all. In our child care services, the YWCA provides a foundation for children that can’t be found anywhere else. In addition to environment that is loving, safe and caring, children are active in our gym throughout the year. We also offer swimming lessons as part of our child care. If you are interested in a tour, please contact us!
We are currently enrolling in our Infant, Toddler, Two-Year Old, and School Age classrooms. Please call the YWCA for the most current availability, as this is subject to change.
