An Updated Message – What’s Up During COVID-19

A- A A+



July 10, 2020

Dear Friends Committed to Community,

Summer is upon us and the COVID-19 experience continues to evolve. With a variety of options and consequences, Southeast Wisconsin has begun to open up, but continues to limit group gathering size and practice physical distancing.

We at YWCA Southeast Wisconsin understand that being in the same room (or not) does not determine what is community.  Community is defined by the values that bind us together as we build a more just future for ourselves and our families.

In that spirit YWCA Southeast Wisconsin’s Milwaukee location is open for limited public access with Racine plans to be determined later in July.  During this time, YWCA SEW’s direct services will continue to be offered remotely without interruption and have expanded to include our Support Line.

Tenant organizations in our Milwaukee HQ have access to the building as their plans permit and they will see clients by appointment only. Please contact them directly to make arrangements.

If you visit our Milwaukee HQ, please know that the only entrance is from our parking lot and you will be required to answer basic health questions, wear a mask while in the building (we can provide these) and wash your hands before proceeding to your appointment.  The Job Center is not open at this time.

We are grateful to donors who continue to make our services and collaborations with sister organizations possible.  Thank you for trusting us to help others build a better life for themselves and their families – especially now.

If you would like to support our work and the future we can build together, know that any amount is appreciated.  Donate Now.  And, we hope you will stay in touch.

Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  And, check our website for important updates. If you have suggestions or ideas about how we can continue to serve and collaborate, email us anytime at

In solidarity,




President and CEO
