YWCA Battered Women's Shelter Receives $30,000 Donation

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The YWCA of Greater Cincinnati has received a generous $30,000 donation from the Stein Family in honor of Jacob Stein's 80th Birthday. The family chose to celebrate the life and legacy of their father by supporting a social service agency serving women and their families in crisis. These funds will be used to support the YWCA Battered Women's Shelter.

The shelter provides a safe haven for women and children fleeing abusive and violent situations. The facility houses 72 women and children and is the only shelter of its kind in Hamilton County, serving nearly 1,000 individuals yearly. The YWCA also operates the YWCA House of Peace shelter serving women and children in Brown, Clermont and Adams Counties. In addition, over 17,000 calls are received on the YWCA crisis hotlines for both shelters.

According to Charlene Ventura, President & CEO of the YWCA of Greater Cincinnati, "The Stein Family's gift demonstrates their generosity and compassion for suffering families and comes at a time when the YWCA Battered Women's Shelter is facing severe funding shortfalls." She further states, "If someone is experiencing domestic violence, they should call the confidential YWCA Domestic Violence Hotline at 513-872-9259.
