YWCA is considered an “essential business” under Governor Inslee’s current “Stay Home, Stay Safe” order, as an organization that “provides necessities of life for economically disadvantaged individuals and shelter facilities.” This means most of YWCA’s programs will continue to serve the community, with some changes to our operations to help protect the health of staff and clients.
Our building is closed to the public however, advocates are available 24 hours a day via telephone: 509-248-7796, dial option #3.
