Cleveland – June 25, 2019 – Upon the retirement of Cogswell Hall Executive Director, Diana Cyganovich, on June 30, 2019, YWCA Greater Cleveland will step in to support the organization through a management agreement as they explore a strategic partnership. Diana has led the organization since 2002 and announced her retirement plans to the Board of Directors in 2018.
Cogswell Hall and YWCA have a shared history as charities founded by dynamic women leaders in the mid-1800s – visionary women who established a tradition of service to those on the margins of society that has remained core to both organizations. “Today, Cogswell Hall and YWCA individually strive to address the threat of homelessness. Together, we share a vision of providing access to quality housing for all those living in Greater Cleveland,” said YWCA President & CEO Margaret Mitchell.
