Valerie Jerome: Distinguished Young Woman Honoree
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.
