Welcome to YWCA Dayton @ Home!

COVID-19 Pandemic Resources

We continue to be On a Mission, centered on maintaining mission-focused care, safety, and response to women and children with emergent needs in safety, housing, and programming, 24 hours every single day. We continue to monitor the ever-changing Coronavirus pandemic and implement protocols and precautions that ensure the health and safety of all in our care, and in our community. We are all in this together, and we will get through it together.

Below, you’ll find a collection of resources that we’ve curated to help during this unprecedented time: resources from our trained staff, activities from our community partners, information from our sister YWCA’s, and of course, what help is available to those who need it most. Have suggestions for something to add? Send us a note at communications@ywcadayton.org.
