Our team is dedicated to advancing our collective mission to eliminate racism and empower women through expanded programming and increased services. Annually, we support over 5,000 clients throughout all walks of life. YWCA Boulder County believes that together, we can face the challenges of our community to work towards a more just and equitable society for all.
We believe our mission is best achieved through comprehensive services and collaboration with aligned organizations, tailored to meet the needs of our community. Many of our clients may utilize our drop-in childcare services while meeting with a financial counselor or attending parenting classes.
For 40 years, Children’s Alley has served as Boulder County’s only drop-in childcare center with sliding scale fees.

Children’s Alley Child Care Closed
On March 18, Governor Jared Polis signed an executive order suspending in-person learning in public and private schools across the state from March 23-April 17. In accordance with this, the YWCA is planning for Children’s Alley to remain closed until Monday, April 20. We will keep you updated weekly as we continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation.
It has been incredibly hard for us to temporarily close our doors knowing that this is creating additional strain on the families we serve and the children we love. While some childcare centers remain open, we are following safety recommendations from Colorado Public Health to close Children’s Alley. As a drop-in childcare center with different children every day, there is an increased risk of spreading COVID-19 and our highest priority has always been to provide quality care while keeping our staff and families healthy and safe.
We are committed to working through this time by identifying the most pressing needs of our community and creatively aligning resources and programming to address these pressing issues. We are staying up-to-date with Boulder County Public Health and will communicate our reopening as soon as it is a possibility.
