YWCA Launches Brand Awareness Campaign

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – The YWCA of Youngstown, along with 220 other YWCAs across the country, is launching a brand awareness campaign to share the work done by the organization.

“We believe greater awareness of our priorities can help our advocacy efforts at both the state and national levels, and we also hope people who can benefit from our services will better understand how we can help them,” says Leah Brooks, president and CEO of the YWCA of Youngstown.

Since it was founded in 1855, the YWCA has worked with social movements including voting rights, civil rights, pay equity, violence prevention and health care reform.

The YWCA is one of the nation’s 25 largest charities with revenues topping $775 million and assisting 25 million women and children in 120 countries.

The local chapter offers permanent and transitional housing, an early childhood education and care program for children up to 12 years old, and programs for women and families such as case management and workshops.

“But there is still unmet need. With this brand awareness campaign, we invite the public to join us on a mission, and help even more women, children, and families,” Brooks says.
