Mission Statement

  

The YWCA Malden’s innovative programs serve as a catalyst for hundreds of at-risk girls, women and families, each year, enabling them to become self-sufficient and to develop into thriving contributors to their communities. The YWCA Malden has maintained its strong position in the community for 85 years by evolving to address the changing needs of one of the most diverse areas in Massachusetts.

Through collaborative efforts with other community leaders, the YWCA Malden fulfills its mission of eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.


Background Statement

The YWCA Malden serves youth and families from Malden, (population 59,450), a densely settled urban community located on Boston’s northern rim. Malden’s per capita income of $27,202 and median household income of $56,347 are well below the state average. Not surprisingly, 12.8% of Malden’s residents are living below the poverty rate. Among students enrolled in the public school system, more than half (58.7%) are living in poverty, a rate significantly higher than the state rate of 34.2%. In addition to the financial challenges faced by so many, the population of Malden has become increasingly diverse over the past few decades. Close to 70% of Malden students are of color and 43% are non-native English speakers. More than 35% of Malden residents are foreign born, a rate significantly higher than the state average. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the ELL population includes a significant proportion of learners characterized by low academic achievement and high rates of grade retention and school dropout. It is therefore critical that YWCA Malden develops programs and initiatives that aim to empower under-served and under-resourced populations, helping to eliminate existing disparities in health care, education and economic success.

Programs

Financial Education and Microenterprise Development for Women and Families

The YWCA Malden Financial Education and Microenterprise Development Initiative was created to help participants achieve economic stability.  Youth and adults benefit from financial education, workshops, materials and on-line resources, as well as personalized financial support services for families struggling from escalating debt and lack of access to credit. In addition, the YWCA Malden provides a range of business skill-building services for emerging female entrepreneurs so they can generate increased income and strengthen microenterprise development.  Through this program clients are empowered as they learn new skills, increase their access to financial resources and then take action that will change their lives. They learn how to maximize  financial decisions. As they learn the basics of financial management, they are encouraged to set short-term and long term financial goals, repair credit, and to explore career options that will lead to financial stability.
Budget  $50,000
Category  Education, General/Other Adult Education
Population Served Females Families Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees
Program Short-Term Success 
Short term goals include:  obtaining and applying personal financial management skills; improved access to banking resources and credit; management of debt; and development of microenterprise initiatives. Economic Security Indicators reveal 85% of all participants who complete the 20-hour group education program acquire and use new personal financial management skills. Consequently, program participants are encouraged to acquire 20-30 hours of financial education skill building.
 
Program Long-Term Success 
The long-term goal of this program is to improve economic stability for program participants, with an emphasis on family financial stability.  Program participants will:
set goals that move then from "protected" to "capable"; program participants set long-term career goals; program participants explore training options, as is appropriate,/and enroll in available programs; program participants are able to reduce reliance on public assistance, moving towards self-sufficiency; program participants/family are thriving. 
 
Program Success Monitored By 
Client progress is measured with the Economic Security Indicator, which assesses housing, employment and financial stability.  Clients report their status as in crisis, at risk, protected, capable and thriving.  Most clients come to the YWCA reporting "at risk" status, and as a result of one-to-one coaching and small group workshops, offered over a six-month period, 50% move to "protected" status.
Examples of Program Success 
The YWCA Malden Credit Repair Program worked intensively with 35 families at imminent risk of  homelessness to address their credit issues and educate them on sound financial principles. As a result, 85% of these clients were able to retain their housing.  The YWCA also supported 14 microenterprise initiatives in various stages of start-up, including, "Denise's" cleaning business. When she came to the YWCA, she had been working for a commercial cleaning company at a low wage and was having trouble meeting her expenses.  With technical assistance, a workable business plan and weekly coaching, Denise doubled her income.  Plans are underway to expand her profitable microenterprise.

High School sophomore, J.J., a court involved youth who has been suspended from school multiple times and was failing academically, stopped by the YWCA,with a friend three years ago launching a slow and steady transformation.  Through a coordinated effort between J.J. and her family, the school department, the courts and the YWCA, J.J. began to benefit from the YWCA's youth programs, offered in combination with school-based tutoring and community-based anger-management.  Gradually her grades turned around and J.J. began participating in the TASK civic engagement program demonstrating her natural leadership abilities.  By the time she reached her senior year, J.J.'s resume and academic "turnaround" was impressive enough that she became one of the first Massachusetts students to be selected to participate in the Legacy Youth Leadership Summer Institute in Chicago.  J.J.
has graduated from High School and is attending Bunker Hill Community College.

YWCA Malden Women's Residency Program

 

YWCA Malden has addressed the need for affordable housing through its Women’s Residency Program. For close to twenty years our Residency Program has provided a safe, affordable and supportive place for women to call home. Residents have easy access to public transportation, employment opportunities, educational programs, and social service agencies. Each resident enjoys a private studio unit, as well as congregate kitchen and living space.

The affordable rent is calculated based on 30% of income. In an effort to better serve very low wage earners, and to address an increase in homelessness, the YWCA has partnered with the Malden Housing Authority through a Voucher Based  Project for six of our 20 of the YWCA housing units.

She is doing well in school, has a  part-time job, and is grateful to be living at the YWCA. Now that she has moved from "crisis" to "at-risk."  her next step will include particpating in personal financial management training.
    • Najit,  a 28 year old Moroccan immigrant was living with friends and working at a local convenience store.  Two months ago her friends made a sudden decision to move to New York, leaving her without a place to live.  She applied to the YWCA for housing.  She is a wonderful addition to the house and has moved from crisis to at-risk and is now on her way to capable. 

    YWCA Malden Women's Wellness: Encoreplus Breast Cancer Intiative

    The essential goal of the YWCA Encoreplus Program is to increase screening among medically underserved women to reduce breast cancer mortality and morbidity using a multifaceted approach to: (1) educate women about the importance of breast health screening; (2) build relationships with other community organizations and individuals; and (3) develop and implement a highly effective referral services to the priority populations. Given its diverse, expert and multilingual leadership team; established community relationships; and history of carefully crafted evidence-based programming, Encoreplus has demonstrated its ability to reach women with the greatest need, a challenging task many other programs fail to achieve. These essential strategies ensure that women receive a continuum of care so breast cancer screening is supported as a life-long and life-saving habit.

    Budget  $90,000
    Category  Diseases, Disorders & Medical Disciplines, General/Other Cancer
    Population Served Females Minorities Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees
    Program Short-Term Success   
    • Extend breast cancer education programs to reach a minimum of 8,000 women through targeted outreach to priority groups using practices that have proved successful in leading targeted women from education to breast cancer screening;
    • Refer 656 women annually for physical exams, clinical breast exams, and mammograms; a minimum of 300 women will receive free screening;
    • Conduct follow-up activities with 100% (500) of the referred women through telephone contact, reminder postcards, and face-to face encounters;
    • Assist women who are undergoing breast cancer treatment through emotional support and by providing wigs/wig care products, as well as undergarments for prosthesis.
    Program Long-Term Success   
    • Reduce breast cancer mortality and morbidity rate among women in Everett, Lynn, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Revere, Salem and Somerville (total pop. 571,148).
    • Strengthen relationships with its existing network of close to 40 grassroots and traditional organizations to enhance outreach efforts to homeless and transient women;
    • Cultivate relationships with 20 faith-based organization serving immigrant populations, including Haitian, Somali, Latina and Portuguese speaking women, who are more willing to receive services when referred by the church community.
    Program Success Monitored By 

     

    The YWCA collects demographic information about service recipients and maintains accurate and updated records through an enhanced computerized system developed by the Avon Breast Health Outreach Program; these Confidential Client Intake Forms also enable the YWCA to conduct timely and efficient follow-up and re-screening services. To determine the impact of the community interventions, the YWCA developed a pre-and post test, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.

     

     

    Examples of Program Success   
    • YWCA Malden has demonstrated its success in implementing and strengthening its Encoreplus program through its capacity to build relationships with both organizations and individuals. The program has grown tremendously over the past two decades. In 1995, for example, the program screened 79 women and in 2010, the program screened 817 women, 92% of whom were re-screens; 817 women received clinical breast exams and 15,537 were educated about breast cancer. 
    • One of the strengths of Encoreplus is the emphasis the program places on personal relationship building. More than half (80%) of outreach volunteers are breast cancer survivors, and therefore have a personal stake in eradicating this disease. Their passion for the cause has contributed to the program’s success, as each woman understands the importance of life-saving education and the power of support.

    CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

    CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

    Board Comments 

    The YWCA Board of Directors plays an active role in the management of the agency.Staff and board work together to plan and implement fund raising events for the benefit of agency programs faced with unexpected and sudden funding cuts. While recent events have been wonderful fundraisers, they also place a strain on both the staff and board. We see this as a capacity and planning issue. To address this concern, the Board has adopted a Capacity Assessment system (research, cost analysis and output measurement); By way of example, the board recently approved funding to purchase a three-year license for access to a corporate and foundation data base.  It was determined that in order for this data base to be useful, the agency would have to also allocate revenue for a part-time grant writer. The plan is to make certain that the necessary resources are in place before committing to new initiatives. Nanette Marchant, Board Secretary

    Board Comments
    YWCA Malden Board members are recruited for:  1.) their strong commitment to the YWCA Malden Mission; and 2.) the skill sets they bring to enhance the effectiveness of a working Board.  As Board members become more involved with the programs and the workings of the YWCA Malden, they can call upon their own experiences to help resolve any issues/challenges the YWCA Malden may face.  The current slate of Board members consists of professional women who have succeeded in their work places and who bring that standard of excellence with them as Board members.  The Board works as a team with the staff of the YWCA, putting together detailed policies so that all operations run smoothly and efficiently.  The Board also works quickly to set up ad-hoc committees to seek resolution of immediate issues.  Board members work towards making the YWCA Malden a Center of Excellence because we believe this makes the YWCA Malden a leader in the Malden community and a leader in providing the services that help to fulfill its mission.

    CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

    Through careful planning, strong governance and staff and volunteer dedication, the YWCA continues to set and follow high standards of service and financial management.  For the past four years, the agency has operated with a balanced budget and experienced modest growth, while providing outstanding service to program participants and the community. We believe that YWCA Malden is well-positioned for significant growth and look forward to serving local women and families for many years to come.

    Impact

    The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.


    1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

    2. What are your strategies for making this happen?

    3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?

    4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?

    5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
