Grant Recipients

Giving grants to nonprofit agencies is a tangible way our organization can further its mission of helping the least of our brothers and sisters. As we go forward on this path, we are fine tuning our interpretation of the 25th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew to help define our grantmaking.

We support agencies that:

    Provide shelter to the unhoused
    Work to prevent food insecurity and hunger
    Ensure that everyone has access to clean water
    Support refugees and immigrants
    Offer physical, mental health and addiction recovery programs
    Help the formerly incarcerated re-integrate into society

We have succeeded in funding many of these areas, but have been diligently seeking opportunities that help us extend our reach. We will continue our work guided by these areas of need.

YWCA Greater Cleveland is committed to advancing social and economic mobility. YWCA staff work with women at Norma Herr to navigate the systemic barriers to exiting homelessness such as racism, sexism, and ableism. YWCA also advocates for the systemic change needed to end these inequities and ensure that everyone in our community has access to safe and affordable housing.
