YWCA Greater Cleveland

Elimination of Poverty

YWCA Greater Cleveland advocates for the elimination and amelioration of poverty for women, children and people of color. When public assistance is necessary, it should be sufficient to support a simple, decent living standard for a family and access to education, job training, child care, and other services needed to secure and retain family supporting jobs.  Jobs paying minimum should also be sufficient in supporting such a lifestyle.
