Father’s Day Campaign Against Domestic Violence

Last year the YWCA served 461 women and 237 children in our domestic violence shelters.  These moms were saving themselves and their children from violent, abusive situations – the kind we should never tolerate.  But this violence is also happening to women we know.

  • 1 in 3 women will experience intimate partner violence in her lifetime.
  • 3-4 women are killed every day in the US by their husband or boyfriend.
  • 1 in 4 teenage girls experience physical or sexual violence in a dating relationship.

For Father’s Day 2018men across Greater Cincinnati have been asked to take a stand against domestic violence.  These men pledged to serve as positive role models and teach respect and healthy relationships to the next generation.

To show our appreciation, names of those who commit $250 or more will be listed in the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Business Courier, and the Cincinnati Herald.   All donors who commit to $100 or more will be recognized on our website.  Please consider joining them in helping the YWCA continue our commitment to ending domestic violence in our community.  Your support helps make this possible.  Make your donation now.
