The National Coordinating Board of YWCA USA issued the following statement on March 8:
"The YWCA USA National Coordinating Board is saddened by the sudden closure of the YWCA of Greater Triangle in Raleigh, NC.
Each YWCA local association is an independent, autonomous non-profit organization with its own board of directors that controls the governance, operations, staffing and financing of that association. The YWCA of Greater Triangle CEO and board of directors did not advise anyone at the national level of its financial situation or its decision to close. The February 29, 2012 announcement took us by surprise.
We are concerned about the impact to staff and the community. A team under the direction of the Southeast Region of the YWCA is evaluating the situation and identifying next steps."
Debra Stock, Board Chair, YWCA USA National Coordinating Board
