Rebuild • Remodel • Restore

The historic YWCA Dayton building at 141 West Third Street in the heart of downtown Dayton has been our home since 1913. The building has been given care and upkeep during the last 100 years, providing a fortitude of refuge, service, and safety for women and children across the Miami Valley.

In return, there are urgent needs. The housing rooms are small and unforgiving; the communal spaces lack modern-day amenities; the structure needs increased ADA accessibility and basic improvements, including new windows and HVAC systems.

In April 2018, we broke ground on the first major overhaul of our flagship home since 1961, aligning our structural space with our mission of providing peace, justice, freedom, and dignity to all who enter. Below are a few commonly asked questions as we embark on this incredible transformation. For specific questions or concerns regarding the renovation, contact us any time at info@ywcadayton.org or 937-461-5550.
