YWCA Southeastern Massachusetts is concluding a capital campaign to fund the construction of a new building addition onto the historic Levi Standish House in New Bedford. Transporting the YWCA’s programs to a new, specifically-designed building will have a significantly positive impact on the disadvantaged children enrolled in our childcare program, the at-risk women in our residential program, and every YWCA constituent as a result of appropriately-designed spaces, controlled and nurturing settings, and a handicap accessible center-city campus. The YWCA will better serve over 5,250 women and children annually within its expanded Levi Standish House in a more cost-effective manner.
The new building addition will include the following program spaces:
The New YWkids School Age Program – First Floor
The new, state-of-the-art YWkids center will be a program space carefully and specifically designed for age-appropriate educational activities for as many as 50 children.
This new facility will be a dramatic transformation from the environment in which YWkids currently operates. The center will increase staff and child interaction, and produce higher educational and skill development outcomes.
New Women’s Single-Occupancy Housing – Second Floor
This new addition will include eight single-occupancy rooms for eight women residents. This congregate living program offers safe and clean housing for women ages 18 and older with shared common living spaces, kitchen and bathroom facilities. Each woman must make a commitment to stay in residency for at least three months.
The Levi Standish House and its new building addition will be accessible and accommodating to all populations.

Leave a Legacy Adopt-a-Brick Campaign
Our Under One Roof Legacy Walkway is made up of engraved bricks that will lead up to the steps of the YWCA’s new building addition, bringing our critical programs that serve women, children and families to a state-of-the-art center-city campus. It will truly be a place of life and history for the YWCA. Bricks along the walkway are available for adoption by families, friends, participants, volunteers, board, staff and the greater community. This is a beautiful way to honor a loved one or leave your own legacy.You can help us reach our goal by purchasing a brick for just $100!
