YWCA Seattle | King | Snohomish is participating in a national competition called Partners in Preservation to renovate spaces that celebrate the contributions of women in communities across the country. Out of the twenty organizations participating, we are one of only three on the West Coast and the only one in Washington State.

Most of the Partners in Preservation campaign involves an online vote, where supporters can vote five times a day, every day, until October 29. However, there will be the opportunity to vote in-person on October 10, and the organization with the most in-person votes wins additional funding!

Our project is a renovation of our iconic Seneca building, YWCA’s headquarters since 1914! Today, the building provides shelter, housing, and a gateway where women can find safety and support. Your vote will transform our heavily-used lobby into a warm, welcoming community space.

Invite your friends and stop by during your lunch break to learn more about our rich history in Seattle.
