YWCA Greater Cleveland receives $10,000 Grant from Callahan Foundation

As one of the oldest continuously operating nonprofits in the area, YWCA Greater Cleveland is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities. YWCA Greater Cleveland provides intensive and individualized case management and permanent supportive housing to homeless youth and young families.

The Callahan Foundation has awarded $10,000 to support the case management portion of the YWCA Greater Cleveland’s Nurturing Independence and Aspirations (NIA) program. The funds will directly support life-changing services for two young people for 12-months by allowing the program’s life coaches to provide the critical engagement opportunities that lead to self-sufficiency.

NIA offers services for those served in YWCA’s Independence Place apartments, permanent supportive housing and the Early Learning Center. This client-centered, critical time intervention approach ensures each person who has experienced homelessness has a say in identifying goals and service needs, and emphasizes shared accountability.
