Providing a Safe Space for Transgender Patients by Margarita Diaz
YWCA’s Independence Place and Nurturing Independence and Aspirations (NIA) services provide comprehensive individualized support for homeless youth so that they can achieve self-sufficiency.
YWCA CLE is the operator of Norma Herr Women’s Center, the largest low-barrier women’s shelter in Cleveland. We have expanded trauma-informed services to help guests move towards housing.
89% of YWCA’s Early Learning Center students have experienced homlessness. We help with young children who have experienced trauma prepare for kindergarten and reach self-sufficiency.
