Advocacy, Inclusion and Public Policy

YWCA Greater Cleveland is. . . . . Advocacy

On November 21, 1868 the 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!

Advocacy through YWCA Greater Cleveland, and our readers and supporters, about these topics can change a nation:

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

We have partnered with Nonprofit VOTE to increase the number of registered voters in our great community. We have met with legislators and ask them to provide us with information about those issues that affect our community. We are working to increase this advocacy arm of our organization.

We hope to engage you in dialog through our social media networks about upcoming 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.

Look for more to come...



We are on a mission to transform the community. Get involved!
