High-fives to Time Warner Cable and Cincinnati Museum Center!
The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati has received a generous
$200,000 gift from the Cincinnati Business & Professional
Women’s Retirement Living, Inc. (CBPWRL), who chose to
continue their legacy of empowering women by supporting
the YWCA’s Domestic Violence Shelter. An endowment
fund will be established, and the income generated will be
used for the operational needs of the shelter and housing
needs for women as they move from crisis to independent
living. The CBPWRL’s original mission was to provide for
the housing needs of working women, and it is fitting that
this gift will carry that work forward through the YWCA’s
services well into the future.
The YWCA Domestic Violence Shelter provides a safe
haven for women and children fleeing abusive and violent
situations. The facility houses 72 women and children
nightly and is the only shelter of its kind in Hamilton
County, serving nearly 1,000 individuals yearly. The
YWCA also operates the YWCA House of Peace shelter
serving women and children in Brown, Clermont and
Adams Counties. In addition, over 17,000 calls are
received on the YWCA crisis hotlines for both shelters.
According to Charlene Ventura, “We are so honored and
feel proud to carry on the Cincinnati Business &
Professional Women’s Retirement Living’s legacy of
hfousing women in need. The synergy be-tween the YWCA
& CBPWRL is perfect, and we will carry forward their
compassion in our work.”
Highfives YWCA & CBPWRL!
