Our Impact

A- A A+


YWCA Greater Cleveland is committed to eliminating racism, empowering women, and ending homelessness in our communities and beyond. To do so, we are guided by our 5-year Strategic Plan and measure our impact in our annual Community Reports:

The Fierce Urgency of Now: 2020-2025 Strategic Plan

2020-2025 Strategic Plan YWCA Greater Cleveland’s last strategic plan covered  2013-2018. That plan helped guide YWCA Greater Cleveland towards increased financial stability, operational infrastructure and organizational effectiveness, which is where it stands today. YWCA Greater Cleveland now turns its attention toward longer-term mission and goals.

The following plan is a strategy-focused update built on the operational plan, spelling out in broad strokes the strategic imperatives that will steer YWCA Greater Cleveland for the next five years. It is founded upon one, overriding imperative—Leading with Racial and Gender Justice for Women and Girls of Color—and three subsidiary, supporting objectives designed to help position and equip the organization to realize that imperative.
