Facility Rentals


YWCA Knoxville and the Tennessee Valley places the health and safety of its clients, staff, members, and supporters at the highest level of importance. As we monitor the COVID-19 status in our service area, we are basing our decisions for program and facility operations on recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our local and state authorities, Knox County Schools and others. In an effort to promote social distancing in our workplace, YWCA is suspending all group meetings and activities, including rentals at all facilities, until further notice.

Renters will be contacted to work on rescheduling events, meetings and other activities. We appreciate your understanding and are honored that you choose YWCA for your personal or business gatherings. YWCA sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
