Overview

Mission Statement

The mission of YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts is "to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people." 

Background Statement

YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts is a multi-service, multi-site agency. Its Children & Families Services serve the Merrimack Valley from sites in Lawrence and Haverhill. Its domestic violence and sexual assault services are available to all Essex County residents from sites in Lawrence, Haverhill and Lynn, and satellite sites in Salem and Newburyport.
YWCA of Greater Lawrence was founded in 1892 to provide social services and safe affordable housing to immigrant women working in the mills. Its first effort was creating a boarding house as an alternative to the unsafe overcrowded and unsanitary conditions many immigrants lived in. Lawrence is the "Immigrant City" and the YWCA remains a lifeline organization for immigrant women and families. Currently Latinos make are 77% of the city's population. YWCA Haverhill, founded in 1891, also created a boarding house for single immigrant women. The two YWCAs merged in 2013. The North Shore Rape Crisis Center, in Lynn, merged with the YWCA in 2013. Now called YWCA North Shore Rape Crisis Center, it has provided sexual assault services for Essex County since the mid '90s.
YWCA Children & Families Services includes year-round, subsidized childcare for over 300 infants-toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children; recreational swimming and Red Cross swimming classes for the community; rentals of an Olympic size pool and gym in Lawrence; a summer day camp  in Salem, N.H.
YWCA Women's Services is a continuum of services for victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. In addition to crisis services (24-hour hotlines for domestic violence and sexual assault, plus accompaniment to hospital, police or court), YWCA staff carry out a robust program of violence prevention education at schools and communities in the Merrimack Valley and North Shore. Other services include: an Emergency Shelter; court advocacy services at Lawrence and Haverhill District Courts: individual and group counseling; a Housing Stabilization (transitional housing) program, a residential Teen Parenting Program, and permanent single-room-occupancy (SRO) housing in Lawrence and Haverhill. 
YWCA Women's Health Services partners with Lawrence General Hospital in a Breast Health Outreach and Education Program for Latina immigrants in Lawrence. It educates about breast health screenings and breast cancer; makes warm referrals for mammograms to LGH; and offers supportive services such as appointment reminders and translation.

 
 
 

Impact Statement

2018 ACCOMPLISHMENTS
After the 2013 merger of YWCA Haverhill and YWCA of Greater Lawrence, renovating and re-opening the old Haverhill residence was a top priority. Work began in Dec. 2015, was completed in Nov.  2017, and residents moved in in early 2018. The $2+ million project added 4 rooms to make ten, and it made the Residence fully ADA-compliant for the first time. The project made an impact on homelessness in Haverhill.

The YWCA improved use of space and added childcare capacity at its 38 Lawrence Street site. Resourcefulness, careful planning and use of in-house labor helped to move two infant-toddler classrooms from basement rooms with minimal daylight, up to bigger and brighter 1st floor space. Then, the Girls Center (a gender-specific year-round program for girls) moved to the basement rooms once they were renovated. They were furnished by grant funds from a local foundation. The improved use of space resulted in added slots in both programs.
Storm damage prevented the YWCA from opening Camp Y-Wood in 2018. The YWCA created a new targeted annual fundraiser to raise funds to repair and improve camp facilities. Fall Fest was held at the camp in Salem, NH. It raised enough funds to repair all storm damage and make improvements to the waterfront and outdoor activities centers.  Work will be done by summer 2019 so camp can re-open. 
 
The YWCA year-round childcare program for children 5-13 has a strong educational enrichment component, but it lacked a STEM component. After contacting the Latino STEM Alliance in Boston, they chose the YWCA as a pilot site for their program and provided the YWCA with equipment, teaching training and support for a STEM curriculum.

2019 GOALS
The YWCA will revamp its Health Promotion Services services programming, upgrade old locker rooms, refinish the gym floor, and install a dedicated pool heater in order to take better advantage of underutilized assets, improve energy efficiency, better serve the community, and generate needed income. 

Needs Statement

1.A pressing need is a new HVAC system for the YWCA Fina House, the four-story building that houses around 50 residents who live in one of three YWCA residential programs.  The first floor of the building serves as offices for the Lawrence domestic violence and sexual assault services staff. The building was constructed in 2005. The HVAC system failed the year after its warranty expired. The heating components work, but the AC does not due to leakages and suspected faulty parts or installation. Stop-gap measures have kept it operating, but it is inevitable that the system will fail. Up to 50 women and children will be left without AC when that happens.
 
2. Since the YWCA operates residential programs in four locations, the YWCA Fina House, the Lawrence Residence, the Haverhill Residence and the YWCA Emergency Shelter, there is a constant need for household items as well as for regular repairs and improvements to these properties.
Women typically arrive at the Shelter with nothing more than what they are wearing and carrying, and often with no money. Once they are ready to leave the Shelter, they are provided with some basics such as bedding and kitchenware. Therefore, there is turnover in all of these items, creating an ongoing need. 
The need to replace furniture as it is worn out or broken, to upgrade electronics, to provide children with suitable age-appropriate toys and games and riding toys, etc. is constant.  

CEO Statement

The YWCA provide programs that address the critical social and economic needs of women, children and families in the communities it serves. YWCA services are life-changing and in some cases, even life-saving. They address basic needs for safety and housing. They help to alleviate poverty and health disparities, to prevent violence, and they address disenfranchisement and advocate for women's rights in the workplace and in the world. For working parents, YWCA affordable (subsidized) child care programs make the difference between working to support a family and improving its economic status, or not working and remaining in poverty. 
 
The YWCA remains committed to acting as an agent of change within our immediate community and to broaden our funding sources to ensure a wide range of quality, affordable and relevant programming.

Transitional and Permanent Housing

The YWCA offers a four-bedroom emergency shelter in a safe location for women and their children fleeing domestic violence. We also offer supported, transitional housing to formerly homeless pregnant and parenting teens and survivors of domestic abuse and their children at YWCA Fina House, which was constructed in 2005 and also offers permanent housing options. Transitional services include workshops on economic self-sufficiency, parenting and anger management, as well as individual case management. All girls in the Teen Parenting Program attend school or are working toward a GED. Women in the OASIS Domestic Violence Program either attend school or are employed. 80% of participants obtain permanent housing after completing the transitional program, with follow-up support provided by the YWCA for up to 2 years. In addition, YWCA Single-Room Occupancy apartments house 10 formerly homeless women, most of whom have physical, intellectual or mental disabilities.
Budget  $963,046.00
Category  Housing, General/Other Emergency Shelter
Population Served Families Females Homeless
Program Short-Term Success 
Women gain the skills they need to obtain jobs, become economically self-sufficient and obtain and maintain permanent housing.
Program Long-Term Success 
Long-term success is measured by the number of women obtaining and maintaining permanent, affordable housing or, in the case of emergency shelter residents, moving to a safe location, preferably one that allows them to continue to work toward self-sufficiency.
Program Success Monitored By 
For transitional housing, we track housing data electronically to measure increases in income and moves to permanent housing. Last year, 100% of those exiting the YWCA OASIS Project for domestic violence survivors obtained and maintained permanent housing for at least one year. We follow residents for up to 18 months after exiting our programs to track housing status and provide support to help them maintain that status.
 
In transitional housing, women and girls work with individual case managers to create long-term goals, then break down the steps they must take to achieve those goals. Individual plans are reviewed monthly to measure progress assess where additional support or instruction is needed.
Examples of Program Success 
Ada (not her real name) fled her abusive husband and would up living on a friend's couch in Lawrence, where she immediately accessed domestic violence services through the YWCA. The mother of a five-year-old daughter, Ada was also pregnant at the time. Her abusive spouse tracked her down and showed up on the friend's doorstep, at which point the friend, fearing for her own safety, asked Ada to leave. Ada and her daughter wound up at a shelter, where she was living when her baby boy was born. She continued to work with the YWCA and, when an apartment became available in the YWCA OASIS Project, transitional housing for domestic violence survivors, she and her children finally were able to have a home. While at OASIS, Ada began volunteering in the YWCA childcare program, which made her eligible for a special workforce program at Northern Essex Community College for women wishing to become licensed childcare providers. Recognizing her strong aptitude for the job, the YWCA offered Ada a full-time, benefitted position. She now works at the YWCA and will soon complete her program at NECC and become a licensed childcare provider. Meanwhile, her son is enrolled in licensed day care and her daughter is in school fulltime. Both are thriving.

Women's Health Advocacy

This grass-roots program serves more than 1,000 people annually, offering resources, education, screening and support services linking low-income, medically underserved women and families to breast cancer and cervical cancer screening, health education services, the highly regarded Stanford Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, and cardiovascular disease and diabetes prevention education and screening, as well as fitness and lifestyle change programs. We have a staff of 2 full-time health advocates supported by 5 part-time, bilingual Health Ambassadors who work tirelessly to increase health literacy and link individuals to services and supports that improve overall health among Lawrence's majority Latino population. The YWCA also coordinates the City of Lawrence Mayor's Health Task Force, an active coalition of nearly 90 nonprofit agencies, health care providers, government agencies and concerned citizens with a focus on improving community health outcomes. Over the past year, we have also spearheaded the Greater Lawrence Health & Welfare Alliance, which convenes grant seekers from health-related organizations in Greater Lawrence to coordinate large-scale, collaborative public health grants.
Budget  $274,763.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Health Care Issues
Population Served Hispanic, Latino Heritage Immigrant, Newcomers, Refugees Families
Program Short-Term Success  Short-term success will include an increase in chronic disease self-management classes through the YWCA and throughout Lawrence, with a focus on Spanish-language programming, with 75% of participants demonstrating an increase is their ability to manage their condition(s). It will also include increasing the ability of healthcare charlas (small groups in familiar settings such as churches, homes or beauty salons) as a first step in linking recent immigrants to health insurance, primary care doctors, screenings such as mammograms, and disease self-management classes. Finally, we will work with Lawrence General Hospital to link  more than 150 Latinas to mammograms and follow-up care by providing Spanish-language support, appointment reminders and ongoing follow up. This is triple the number of women linked prior to this collaboration.
Program Long-Term Success  Ideally, this program will decrease health disparities, which are differences in health and healthcare quality due to socio-economic, racial, ethnic or educational status, while increasing health equity. Although this is difficult to track, we use health data and needs assessments provided by the local hospitals and federally qualified health center to track progress. For instance, when we began collaborating on work to improve health outcomes for diabetics, the health center's statistics put its Medicaid patients in the bottom 15% in terms of achieving desirable health outcomes. That was in 1999; 16 years later, through a concerted community focus on chronic disease self-management, Medicaid patients are now in the top 15% in terms of outcomes. 
Program Success Monitored By 

All contacts and activities, along with demographic and other data logged in excel spread sheets by the YWCA. In addition, local hospitals and the Greater Lawrence Family Health Center maintain detailed patient records and also conduct health needs assessments. The YWCA collects client feedback through pre and post tests and follow-up phone calls.

Examples of Program Success 

 We were  able to convince Lawrence General Hospital to allow walk-in mammogram appointments without a referral from a primary care doctor, to increase access to screenings and reduce missed appointments. This is essential because, breast cancer is a leading cause of death among Latinas, not because of prevalence, but because of delayed detection and treatment.

YWCA Health Ambassadors have worked to catalogue the large number of faith communities in Lawrence, many of which are storefront or itinerant. Churches are often the first place that recent immigrants go seeking supporting and information. To our knowledge, we are the first to do so, and that list has helped to expand the reach of the Health Advocacy Program by partnering with faith communities to offer charlas and chronic disease self-management classes.We also know that our charlas can save lives. One woman who attended a charla at her church was convinced to get her first mammogram, which showed she had early stage breast cancer. She was able to get treatment and now looks forward to joining the YWCA Cancer Survivors group.

CEO Experience

Susan Staples became Executive Director on July 1, 2017 after serving for five years as Director of Program Operations. Susan's tenure as Executive Director coincidentally began the same day that the agency legally adopted its new name. (The former YWCA of Greater Lawrence became YWCA Northeastern Massachusetts.) As the chief executive officer of the YWCA, Susan is responsible to the Board of Directors for leadership and administration of the YWCA. She was chosen for the position based on her significant accomplishments as Director of Program Operations over the prior five years, a period of tremendous change for the agency. Susan was instrumental in managing the agency as it expanded rapidly in one year, adding the YWCA Haverhill, the YWCA Enrichment Center, and the North Shore Rape Crisis Center to its existing sites in 2015. She played a critical role in renovating and re-opening an Emergency Shelter in 2015, and ing the renovation, expansion and re-opening of a 10-unit residence for low income women in Haverhill over 2016-2017. In her earlier role as Director of Program Operations, she was responsible for domestic violence and sexual assault programs at three sites, and also oversaw the program provided by the YWCA Children and FAmilies Services. She has held progressively responsible positions at the YWCA of Greater Lawrence since 2005, when she joined the YWCA as Interim Director of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Services. She has facilitated training regionally for SA/DV professionals, was selected to serve on the Department of Public Health's DV Procurement Team, contributing to the development of the 2016 statewide contract procurement process, and she has been recognized as  leader in the SDV field in Eastern Massachusetts for many years. 

Susan has over 25 years in the SDV field. Prior to joining the YWCA, Susan was a Director for twelve years at Help for Abused Women and Children (HAWC), now knowns as Healing Abuse Working for Change.

Susan earned a Masters of Education in Counseling Psychology in 1993.
