Paving the Way — A New Direction for YWCA Minneapolis

In a continued effort to address longstanding inequities and pave the way to a brighter future for all, YWCA Minneapolis is restructuring the organization to further disrupt the systemic issues plaguing children and their families. Specifically, YWCA Minneapolis is resetting program priorities and redeploying capital and resources toward higher-impact programming, including Early Childhood Education, Girls and Youth, and Racial Justice and Public Policy programs, as well as reimagining our YWCA Midtown location as a community hub.

As YWCA Minneapolis embraces this new chapter, the Board of Directors and Senior Leadership Team have made the difficult decision to close fitness, gym and pool operations at the Uptown and Downtown locations and consolidate our fitness offerings to YWCA Midtown effective November 1, 2023.



Elevator Closure Beginning July 11

The elevator at our Downtown location will be out of service for needed repairs beginning Tuesday, July 11. We currently expect the repairs to take a minimum of three months and will let you know when we are able to resume operation. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding accessibility while the elevator is being repaired, please let us know.
