YWCA Members, Childcare Families, and Program Participants

Your health and the health of our community is our top priority. With that in mind, we are closing YWCA facilities to the public and transitioning into a community resource center. Our closing will be implemented as follows:

  • Monday, March 16th YWCA Fitness and Aquatics programs will be closed as of 9PM
  • Monday, March 16th All YWCA Programming that has not been scheduled remotely is canceled 
  • Tuesday, March 17th YWCA Childcare (Early Learning, NC Pre-K, Headstart, Empowerment Childcare, and A-B Tech childcare) will close at 6PM. We are hopeful that this will allow families time to make other arrangements. 

These closures are in effect until May 15th, however, as our county status with COVID-19 changes this might also change.  

While we will be closed to the general public, we are transitioning our site into a Community Resource Center in order to continue assisting our community through this time. Therefore, we will be partnering with Manna Food Bank to package and deliver food for those in need starting Tuesday, March 17th.

We will be offering Emergency Childcare to first responders, healthcare workers, and essential county personnel from ages 0 – 12 years. The center will operate from 7:30am – 6pm with lunch provided for $15/day.

“The greatness of community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” –Coretta Scott King

We are in this together, and with your help we can make sure the most vulnerable among us make it through this crisis.
