THE STORY:

Young Womens Christian Association Of Dayton Ohio wrote -

YWCA Dayton is Dayton’s oldest women’s organization, supporting women in need to be safe and independent since 1870. Its work to eliminate domestic violence began in the late 1880s with a petition to the Ohio General Assembly asking for “better legal protection for women against  assault.” 


In 1977, our Battered Woman Project was one of the first 25 domestic violence shelters to open in the U.S., and the second opened by a YW. Today, YWCA USA is the single largest provider of domestic violence shelters and services in the nation, and YWCA Dayton operates the only domestic violence shelters in Montgomery and Preble counties, including our area’s oldest 24-hour, year-round crisis hotline (937-222-SAFE). Between shelter services and hotline calls, our staff support an average of 125 women and children every day.


Shelter services include: 

 ✔ emergency shelter

 ✔ crisis intervention

 ✔ case management

 ✔ food

 ✔ clothing and personal care items

 ✔ housing support

 ✔ support and educational groups

 ✔ individual advocacy

 ✔ goal planning

 ✔ safety planning

 ✔ follow-up and referrals


Our shelters have a 95% client satisfaction rating upon shelter exit, and we are the only COA-accredited domestic violence services site in Montgomery County. (Nationally, only 61 DV services sites are COA-accredited.)


In honor of YWCA Dayton's 40 years of sheltering domestic violence survivors, join us in raising $40,000 during this year's Purple Purse Challenge. Your support ensures a safe and secure future for hundreds of women and children across the Miami Valley every day -- and will ensure this support remains for another 40 years, and beyond. Thank you!
