Our downtown location is a 12-story building conveniently located in the heart of Madison on the Capitol Square at 101 East Mifflin Street. It was formerly the historic Belmont Hotel, built in the 1920s. The largest provider of affordable housing to women in Dane County, the YWCA is home to more than 450 women, children, and families each year.

The YWCA Madison seeks to be a community of inclusion. While we encourage fans to share thoughts and opinions on social media profiles managed by the YWCA, we expect that this will be done in a respectful manner. The YWCA Madison does not agree with nor endorse every comment that individuals post on our social media profiles. Our goal is to share ideas and information with as many individuals as possible and our policy is to accept the majority of comments made to our profile. As a 501 (3) tax-exempt organization, we cannot endorse political candidates. And, while we want to engage with people of all opinions, hate speech does not contribute to a constructive conversation.
A comment will be deleted if it contains:
Repeated violations of the comment policy may cause the author to be blocked from YWCA social media spaces. We understand that social media is a 24/7 medium; however, our moderation capabilities are not. We may not see every inappropriate comment right away, and we are trusting in the maturity of our community to ignore personal attacks and negative speech or respond politely.
