Programs and Services - YWCA West Central Michigan

annual report


Dear Friends,

The last twelve months have been filled with new beginnings.

The most visible change is our new brand – a striking, modern color, logo, and look that represents an invigorated

national organization; one rich in history and experience, and one that links its local associations

through a common identity and agenda. While the look is new, it represents a mission that has been at the

heart of the YWCA from the beginning – to empower women and eliminate racism. With this collective

purpose and identity comes the clarity, focus and muscle to strengthen the position of women throughout

our country.

One particular effort which was begun last year has now come to fruition, yielding immediate to benefit

staff and customers, and promising even more in the future. The YWCA successfully implemented a

customized database that allows us to electronically and comprehensively manage all customer records

for the first time. Ultimately, this improvement will help us better develop innovative, stronger responses

– individualized and systemic – to address issues of violence for survivors and our community.

The YWCA’s Health Fitness Center saw dramatic changes in its look and direction as well. After significant

research and heartfelt consideration, the YWCA Board of Directors voted to convert the pool facilities into an

area for land-based fitness services. Because net pool-related expenses (not otherwise offset by pool-related

revenue) accounted for a significant portion of the Health Fitness Center’s total expenses, the decision was

made in order to strengthen the Health Fitness Center’s financial outlook. Additionally, it helped to better

ensure that overall organizational resources could be adequately distributed among all YWCA services. While

difficult, the result has more than doubled the space available for equipment and provided permanent homes

for group exercise classes. The shift from aquatic to land-based programming has also expanded the YWCA’s

ability to partner with downtown organizations and businesses related to their internal wellness programs.

With an eye to the future, particularly related to the issue of domestic violence, we are looking to expand our

community role even further. The YWCA has accepted an invitation to participate in our local community’s

initiative, “Vision to End Homelessness”, which aims to end local homelessness within the next ten years.

Given that most homeless women and children are so as a result of domestic violence, we believe our organization

has a strong investment in ensuring the initiative’s progress. The coming year will also see the

YWCA partnering with the West Michigan Hispanic Center in an effort to create stronger, more culturally

competent interventions for victims of violence.

In total, the year has been a momentous one and more details are included in the following pages. We continue

to find strength from the lessons of our past and are emboldened by the promise of what is to come.

For your role in all of our success, we offer you the YWCA’s deepest thanks.

Board of Directors President/CEO

Our Mission:

Empowering Women, Promoting Diversity and Advocating for Justice and Equality

The YWCA of Grand Rapids...

has been a place of hope, healing and renewal since 1900. During that time, the YWCA

has renewed itself time and again in reponse to the changing needs of women. Today,

our services work in concert to address the issues of violence against women and children

which undermine individuals, families, and our community. With comprehensive services,

participation in community-based solutions and ongoing education, our vision is a

community that demonstrates a commitment to creating a nurturing, violence-free environment

for women and children.

For families experiencing the trauma of incest and non-familial molestation, the YWCA

provides Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Services. Components of our treatment program

include individual, family, marital, and group counseling, as well as educational

and support groups.

The YWCA’s Domestic Violence Services have been an integral part of our programming

since 1977. One of Michigan’s leaders in responding to the issue of domestic

violence, our services have evolved to include crisis intervention, a domestic violence

shelter, specialized counseling for victims and assailants, and a long-term transitional

housing component to equip and educate women so they can support themselves after

they transition out of the shelter and the cycle of domestic violence.

The YWCA Girls Inc. Program offers girls ages 9-18 opportunities in math, science,

sports, health and sexuality, technology, as well as a wealth of other extracurricular activities,

after school and during the summer. Using the nationally regarded “Girls Inc.”

curriculum, the YWCA helps girls build their self-esteem and confidence, set boundaries,

and develop healthy relationships with adults.

Seen as a key component to overall health and personal renewal, the YWCA’s Health

Fitness Programs have existed in various forms since the organization was established

in 1900. Today, we pride ourselves on maintaining a comfortable, “come as you are” environment.

We offer a variety of programs for women, seniors, men, and families – providing

a safe place where people can heal and grow stronger in mind and body.

Through the YWCA’s Sexual Assault Services we assist approximately 700 victims of

sexual assault each year as they work to rebuild their lives. Noted as one of the most

comprehensive programs in Michigan, the YWCA’s Sexual Assault Services include

critical crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, and short-term respite services

for victims unable to return home. The YWCA’s nurse examiner component is also our

community’s resource for medical-forensic rape examinations.

Our Mission:

Empowering Women, Promoting Diversity and Advocating for Justice and Equality

Programs and Services

Child Sexual Abuse Treatment Services

With research showing that between 25 and 30 percent of children are victims

of sexual abuse before they reach adulthood, the YWCA’s Child Sexual Abuse

Treatment Services continue to be a critical part of our community’s response

to this issue. In 2003-04, the YWCA served 352 families (761 individuals).

Despite the dynamics surrounding sexual abuse that often results in early withdrawal

from treatment, the YWCA was able to retain 91 percent of clients in

longer-term therapy. During the year, 140 families completed treatment with

an increased capacity to live free from sexual violence.

The majority of referrals to our program from Medicaid/ Community Mental

Health are now of children who are also in foster care. Not only are these

children experiencing struggles associated with sexual assault, they also face a

myriad of issues associated with being removed from their families and being

placed in foster care. The result has been an increase in the proportion of

children entering our program with multiple challenges.

YWCA Girls Inc. Program

One year after the conclusion of our pilot period, dramatic growth was seen throughout the

YWCA’s Girls Inc. Program. This is due, in large part, to a strengthened partnership with

the Grand Rapids Public Schools and increased interest in Girls Inc. programming. The result

was an enrollment of 328 girls -- more than twice that of the previous year. As the only

Girls Inc. licensee in Michigan, the YWCA is in a unique position to support girls in our


With the program mission of strengthening developmental

assets (internal and external strengths/skills that help keep

children safe), participant surveys continue to show the

effectiveness of Girls Inc. for this population -- 92 percent

report an increase in developmental assets that focus on

support, empowerment, boundaries and expectations, commitment

to learning, positive values, social competencies

and positive identities.

YWCA Domestic Violence Services

Victims of domestic violence often face substantial barriers that inhibit their abilty to gain

independence from their abusive partner. The YWCA’s Domestic Violence Services effectively

address many of those issues, making it possible for victims to gain access to critical

services that help them acheive safety and independence.

In 2003-04, the YWCA sheltered 448 women and children at the Domestic Crisis Center.

The weak local job market, combined with the dynamic of domestic violence wherein

victims have often endured economic and social isolation for years, continues to lengthen

the average stay. In 2003-04, that increased to 20 days which is an overall increase of 33

percent since 2001. However, the additional time has been put to good use. Over 90 percent

of residents who stay at least 10 days complete a safety plan unique to their situation

before leaving the Domestic Crisis Center. Eighty-seven percent report that they are able

to maintain a safer lifestyle for six months after leaving.

In January 2004, in order to empower survivors in their vocational planning with Project

HEAL, we created our Resource Library and Center. Staff offer career assessments, guide

participants in completing or continuing their education, collect information on employment

options, and even provide introductory computer classes. Participants are also given

their own email accounts, access to the library’s informational resources and use of three

computers. To date, 71 percent of participants have utilized the Center.

Our counseling services are a vital complement to our shelter and transitional housing

programs, effectively working to overcome the psychological and behavioral elements of

domestic violence. Ninety-two percent of those participating in either victim or assailant

counseling are able to identify the dynamics of domestic violence unique to them upon

completion of counseling.

Sexual Assault Services

YWCA Sexual Assault Services provide critical interventions for victims so that they can

cope with the trauma of their experience. During 2003-04, the YWCA served 684 clients

through our Nurse Examiner Program, crisis line, and counseling and support groups.

As evidence of the YWCA’s importance to this population, 88 percent of individuals

concluding a course of crisis counseling or individual therapy reported a decrease in

symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

As part of the Kent County Sexual Assault Response Team, the YWCA Nurse Examiner

Program has gained national recognition for its progressive, collaborative efforts in addressing

the issue of sexual assault in our community. As one of eighty-eight original

applicants and one of just eight selected teams, the Kent County Response Team was

invited by the End Violence Against Women International Project to attend their October

2004 national conference entitled “Making A Difference”. We anticipate the information

gleaned from our experience there will prove extremely helpful to our community as we

work to strengthen our efforts even further.

total, the YWCA served 386 families (703 individuals) through our Health and Fitness Services.

The Health Fitness Center also underwent a major

renovation in the Summer of 2004. As a result of continued

financial struggles brought on by the significant

expenses associated with operating our 83 year-old pool,

the Board of Directors voted to shift the Health Fitness

Center’s focus from aquatic programming to land-based

programming. This was done in order to help better

adjunct to their employee wellness efforts.

Goodwill Industries

The YWCA of Grand Rapids is pleased to recognize six women whose active participation

in our organization helped further the YWCA’s mission and strengthened

our community. It is because of their exceptional contributions that they have been

honored as the namesakes of the YWCA’s giving circles which pay tribute to today’s

generous YWCA supporters.

As one of the YWCA’s early leaders, Grace Dyer Hunting led the capital campaign in

the early 1920s to build our current Sheldon Boulevard facility. Aided by her fundraising

committee, $567,000 was raised in just seven days. A civil rights leader, Helen

Claytor blazed the trail for later generations when she became board president of the

YWCA of Grand Rapids in the late 1940s and again in the mid-sixties when she assumed

the position of board president of the YWCA of the USA. Educator, attorney,

social activist and later candidate for the Fifth Congressional District, the YWCA was

well served by Jean McKee who led the organization as its board president during the

tumultuous times following the local race riots in 1967 and 1968. Frances Rutherford,

the first female city physician in the U.S., directed her commitment to public health

toward the establishment of the YWCA’s predecessor organization – the Women’s

Gymnasium and Noon Rest – in the late nineteenth century. Rutherford and others,

including Emma Wanty whose extraordinary fundraising ability and active leadership

in numerous offices, helped establish the YWCA and strengthened its position as an

important community resource. One of the YWCA of Grand Rapids’ earliest African

American volunteers in the 1940’s, Loney Clinton Gordon played a leading role in the

research that led to the discovery of the Whooping Cough vaccine. Like her YWCA

peers, her contributions extend well beyond our organization and even our local community.

Today, we see further, because it is on their shoulders that we stand.
