YWCA Greater Cleveland

Advocacy, Inclusion and Public Policy

YWCA Greater Cleveland is. . . . . Advocacy

On November 21, 1868 YWCA Greater Cleveland opened its doors, advocating for housing, education, training and jobs for women or those migrating to the city looking for a better life. From being the founder of homes for the homeless, to building gymnasiums for girls, to speaking on behalf of everyone’s civil rights, YWCA Greater Cleveland has been a leader in not only justice, but an advocate for hope!

We are proud to announce 148 years later, 2016, we are utilizing our networks to communicate to our readers and supporters about topics that we believe can change a nation:

• Early Childhood Education
Elimination of Poverty
Elimination of Youth Homelessness
• Health Equity
• Housing
Racial Equity
Women's Economic Empowerment
• Youth Aging Out of Foster Care

We hope to engage you in dialogue through our social media networks about these and other issues that may influence your ability to live a quality life.

Thank you for your continued support and for joining us in reading, expressing your opinions and moving the action forward as we ADVOCATE at YWCA Greater Cleveland.


We are on a mission for social justice. Get involved!
