YWCA of Greater Cleveland received grant funds to construct an outdoor educational classroom for children in the Early Learning Center. YWCA has incorporated therapeutic and additional education services into its early learning center model to better serve children age three to five experiencing homelessness or similar adverse experiences. This innovative trauma-informed model will assess and identify the social-emotional needs of the children, work with families to create goals and case plans, prevent re-occurrence of homelessness, and empower families to achieve and maintain the highest level of self-sufficiency. This grant application was endorsed by McDonald’s Owner/Operator Geoffrey Ledwidge who owns several McDonald’s restaurants in Cleveland.
