Dear Community,

Youngstown will close doors to the public, starting Tuesday, March 17th, and until further notice. We are also suspending programming, including our volunteer-based restoration projects, arts classes, and all regularly scheduled events.

For an organization that exists to connect communities, this is a sad reality, but as our work is centered on the health and sustainability of our community, this is also an act of love.

In that spirit, we’d like to say thank you to those who frequent our Youngstown Cultural Arts Center which sees over 45,000 guests annually, and those who offer support to DNDA through volunteering, donations, attending events, and supporting our flagship tenants. We appreciate you. We are committed to doing our part in decreasing the spread of this virus and look forward to serving you in the future. In the short run, we are exploring as many avenues as possible to connect with you virtually and to sustain this cherished community.

We will continue to take our lead from our partners at Seattle and King County Public Health. As you know, this is a rapidly evolving situation and a lot can change in a very short period.

Stay well, keep in touch, and love to you and yours.
