Our Legacy.

Our Future. 2017 – 2018 ANNUAL REPORT

OUR LEGACY. OUR FUTURE. As we celebrate our 150th Anniversary we are reminded of our rich and impressive legacy as an international movement.


We were founded in 1868 in Cincinnati as the fifth YWCA in the country. Shortly after our founding, YWCA leaders began to develop an understanding of the increased barriers to gender equality and the varying needs that women of color and immigrant women were experiencing. We did not have a common lexicon to describe the work we were doing then, but this work may have been some of our first attempts at an intersectional approach. And that approach continues to today — and is our future.






Opened the 1st Women’s Employment Bureau that began giving women equal employment opportunities

Assisted immigrant women and offered bilingual instruction

Adopted a national platform on wages and work week


Helping adults move out of poverty YWCA created First Course: Certified Dining Room Associate Program, the only front of the house hospitality training in the area

Serving immigrant survivors of domestic violence with 24 other organizations, YWCA is lead agency

Leading advocacy for pay equity and family-friendly public policies in partnership with the Ohio Council of YWCAs






Publicly supported anti-lynching legislation

YWCA USA passed its One Imperative to “eliminate racism wherever it exists and by any means necessary”

Began addressing the urgent need for domestic violence services and in 1978 opened the first domestic violence shelter

Launched the first annual Stand Against Racism event on Fountain Square to build community and raise awareness about racism

Partnering with schools to implement Restorative Practices to prevent children of color being disproportionately suspended and expelled thereby breaking the school to prison pipeline

Facilitating community conversations on race and racism and bringing a new equity training program to local businesses and organizations

Providing traumainformed care and services to over 700 adults and children annually in the only domestic violence shelters serving Adams, Brown, Clermont and Hamilton counties

Leading newly formed Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate in partnership with 18 other community organizations

So you can see that Our Legacy is Our Future. What makes us unique is that the YWCA has always been a leader on women’s issues, intentionally working together across economic, generational, ethnic and racial differences — since 1858. Sadly, our mission is as relevant today as it was 150 years ago. Our work is far from over. As we continue to boldly build a better community, we stay strongly committed to our mission — to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people.


SAFETY Protecting the safety of women and girls is a primary pillar of our work at YWCA. We provide shelter, housing and interventions while we also work to prevent the cycles of violence. FAMILY VIOLENCE PRE VENTION & INTERVENTION

Family violence prevention & intervention services provide a continuum of services to help keep survivors of family violence safe and prevent future occurrences of violence. Prevention Services YWCA provides prevention education to 3,000 students about teen dating violence and bullying. • Over 99% reported improvements to decision-making, optimistic thinking, and ability to resist unhealthy behaviors. • 1,000 service providers were trained to recognize and intervene in abuse, specifically children exposed to domestic violence. Intervention Services YWCA provides shelter and housing to over 700 survivors of domestic violence and their children. Shelter, food, counseling, and coordination of community resources are provided for the safety and stabilization of each family.


• 94% of survivors developed a safety plan to be prepared in advance for the possibility of further violence. • 100% of those exiting temporary housing secured permanent housing. • 59% of those receiving housing and shelter were able to maintain or increase their income during a time of extreme crisis and trauma. COMMUNIT Y-BA SED INTERVENTION SERVICES

Community-based intervention services include court advocacy, case management and domestic violence services including specialized programming for child protection cases, immigrant survivors and those with disabilities. • 600 adults who have harmed their intimate partners received group services designed to help identify and change thoughts and beliefs, thus ending the cycle of domestic violence.

ASHLEY Domestic violence survivor “I’m tired. I can’t do this anymore, even if I have nothing. I have to leave if me and my kids are ever going to have a chance. I don’t want them to think it’s ok to treat women that way.” Ashley, a mother of two, was in a physically and mentally abusive relationship for 5 years. She was employed but continued to lose jobs because of his controlling ways. She hid the abuse from her family because she was embarrassed and needed to find somewhere to go for safety. Ashley called the YWCA Domestic Violence hotline and was able to move into shelter immediately. She packed a bag for each of her children, but only had the clothes on her back, and made the greatest and most difficult decision she’s ever made — to leave. Living in a shelter with other families who have experienced significant trauma is challenging. It’s hard to get comfortable — everyone there is working through significant issues. Through group and individual sessions with caring and compassionate

staff she was able to begin thinking clearly again and create a plan to rebuild her life. Staff were there every step of the way to ensure her long-term safety and self-sufficiency goals were attained. Finally safe from abuse, Ashley needed housing and employment. YWCA’s continuum of services includes work-readiness programming. She received specialized employment training and secured a job where she feels valued, part of a team, and is able to earn what she needs to take care of her family. Ashley qualified for housing through YWCA’s rapid rehousing program, and secured an apartment that allowed her children to remain at the same school. To ensure long-term success, she meets with her housing case manager bi-weekly to work on financial literacy and any other barriers to self-sufficiency, and also to receive the emotional support someone who has experienced the trauma of abuse needs to be emotionally well. “Now I’m not embarrassed to talk about it because I’m a survivor. I hope sharing my experience with others gives someone in an abusive relationship the courage to call the YWCA. It could save their life.”


EMPOWERMENT & ECONOMIC ADVANCEMENT Expanding economic opportunities and creating avenues to promote the empowerment of women and girls is another primary pillar of our work. We do this through our Family Learning & Workforce Development Services. FAMILY LE ARNING

Family Learning & Workforce Development Services remove barriers to self-sufficiency and break the cycle of intergenerational poverty for over 800 individuals and children. A partnership between YWCA and Cincinnati Early Learning Center provides an academically and socially-enriched, 5-star rated child care experience, preparing children for kindergarten. • 100% of children demonstrated progress in development of social and emotional skills and 94% were on track with their cognitive and language development. • 85% of children graduating were assessed as ready for kindergarten.

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY), a family literacy and home visitation program for low-income families, helps parents prepare their children for school success. • 97% of the families served demonstrated effective parenting skills. • 87% of children demonstrated progress in cognitive and language skills. WORKFORCE DE VELOPMENT

Workforce Development empowers over 300 individuals with the skills to attain viable employment, increase financial stability and reach self-sufficiency. • 86% attained a credential or their high school equivalency diploma. • 65% of those completing First Course, a Certified Dining Room Associate program, obtained and retained employment.


PAY GAPS Wages for women are affected by both gender and race

White Men White Women African American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander Women American Indian, Alaskan Native, Hispanic or Latina Women Based on AAUW Report, The Simple Truth about the Gender Pay Gap


97% of the 148 families served demonstrated effective parenting skills through participation with HIPPY

KATHY & KINLEY HIPPY participants Kathy, a daycare provider, adopted her niece Kinley when Kinley’s mom was unable to care for her. Kathy was aware that Kinley would need extra help to be prepared for kindergarten. Kathy received services from HIPPY for her son and knew that HIPPY would be exactly what she needed to help Kinley learn. Kathy and Kinley completed two years of the program. Kinley completed the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment and scored in the top band demonstrating the foundational skills and behaviors that prepare her for kindergarten instruction. Kathy also introduced HIPPY to one of her daycare families who qualified for services. After two years of the HIPPY program, that child also scored in the top band based on Ohio’s kindergarten standards and was prepared for kindergarten success.


WHY IS RACISM SO HARD TO ADDRESS? We are often reluctant to acknowledge the legacies of race.

GABRIELLA First Course graduate Gabriella, “Gabby,” a single mom of a toddler, has goals and dreams just like every 21 year old. Her goal of becoming a nurse was put on hold when she made a mistake at 18 that left her with a blemish on her record. Her record made it difficult to find a job to pay the bills and provide for her son. She was living in poverty and needed help. She was ready to give up. Gabby applied for government assistance until she could find work, and through Ohio’s Comprehensive Case Management Employment Program was connected with YWCA’s First Course: Certified Dining Room Associate Program. After graduating from First Course and becoming certified as a Dining Room Associate, she was hired by Nicholson’s as a server. She’s now earning a competitive wage that is helping her move out of poverty. She has her own apartment and her life is back on track. “I don’t know where I would be without the YWCA. I was ready to give up, but they gave me the strength I needed and pushed me to keep going.”


We prefer to address the symptoms rather than the roots of social problems. We are generally more comfortable discussing class and gender. We often fail to acknowledge the ways that race has been a fundamental axis of social organization in the United States.

RACIAL JUSTICE & INCLUSION YWCA has long understood that all women cannot be empowered unless we address the issue of racism. Racial justice is at the core of our work and our third primary pillar, because women of color are often the most marginalized and have the least access to resources. Racial justice is more than a programmatic intervention, it is a guiding philosophy and practice that is incorporated into all of the work we do. We know that racial justice means advocating for all kinds of protections that impact the lives of women and girls. Our fight for women is a fight for all women of color and immigrant women. YWCA also has a broad view of gender justice that includes the experiences of LGBTQ people


and those targeted because of their gender identity or perceived gender identity. At the core of the YWCA’s work is the recognition that all women, or all people, are not treated equally. We do this work through Direct Service, Issue Education and Advocacy. AND OUR INITIATIVES INCLUDE:

• • • •

Racial Justice Annual Breakfast Racial Justice Educational Series Stand Against Racism Campaign Cincinnati Regional Coalition Against Hate




ADVOCACY IN ACTION This year the YWCA, along with 18 other organizations focused on eliminating racism, created the CINCINNATI REGIONAL COALITION AGAINST HATE (CRCAH). The CRCAH is a nonpartisan alliance of organizations committed to being vigilant of and opposing hate activity by supporting impacted communities, responding in solidarity, and offering community education to foster acceptance, compassion and justice. YWCA Greater Cincinnati was selected by a group of concerned community leaders to serve as the lead agency for the Coalition. OUR WORK CONSISTS OF:

• promoting inclusive values; • monitoring activity that runs counter to these values; • creating timely responses to hate crimes and bias incidents; • supporting victims; and • conducting year-round community education on the causes and prevention of hate activity, bias, bigotry and racism. Through coordinated, timely and community-wide responses the CRCAH’s main objective is to ensure the Greater Cincinnati region is open, compassionate and diverse, and intolerant of hateful ideologies and actions towards vulnerable populations.
