COVID-19 Updates at the YWCA

Update April 1, 2020 4:30 pm
PLEASE NOTE UPDATED OPERATIONAL INFORMATION

Dear YWCA community,

We are committed to providing a safe, healthy and compassionate environment for all who enter our doors. Daily, the nation’s response to the COVID-19 virus is evolving and we remain committed to having our decisions informed by facts coupled with consideration of the broad constituency we serve. Communicating with our members and program participants remains a high priority.

In the interest of promoting safe public health practices and with the recommendations from the CDC and our local Health Departments, the YWCA is taking recommended actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to maintain a healthy community. Below is an update on all YWCA services.

Child Care Services:

We regret that we are unable to re-open our childcare services on Monday, April 6th.  However, we will remain open to the possibility of providing for the need while our state adheres to Governor Evers’ Safer at Home order (currently in effect through April 24th). 

Please stay in communication about your needs as our leadership team will continue to assess the feasibility of offering care based on matching capacity and needs. We thank you for your patience during these rapidly changing circumstances. We continue to be grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your family by offering quality childcare services. For more information, please email Sarah Bucio at sbucio@ywcagreenbay.org.
