Communities of Hope (“COH”) : A place-based model designed by Casey Family Programs to engage the local community and bring more wrap-around services and requested support to families living in high-need communities in an effort to reduce poverty and the number of children in out-of-home placements.
The YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County (YWCA) was established in 1920 in response to the needs of women converging on the State Capital. Major priorities included voting rights, labor rights, housing, and other areas focused on equality. The mission, both locally and nationally, is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
The YWCA of Annapolis & Anne Arundel County, while affiliated with the YWCA USA, is an independent 501c3 organization. The YWCA establishes the work priorities locally, maintaining four (4) primary program areas including residential, counseling, legal, and education. Currently, with fifty (50) team members, the YWCA is supporting almost 10,000 Anne Arundel County residents annually who have been affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, sex trafficking, teen dating violence and/or stalking.
The YWCA maintains five (5) service sites including the main administrative office in Arnold, the Weinberg Residence (domestic violence safe house, capacity 32), the Education & Wellness Center, Glen Burnie District Court, and Annapolis District Court. It is anticipated that the YWCA will be expanding to add a residential program/facility for trafficked youth in 2023.
YWCA has buildings all over the US, and several locations in MD aside from Annapolis.
