According to a 2015 report by the Office of Criminal Justice Services, nearly 100 people per 100,000 within Cuyahoga County’s population experience some sort of sexual abuse or assault. This data is among some of the highest within the state.
United Way of Greater Cleveland believes that sexual assault, rape and human trafficking are issues that must be tackled with strong resolve. That is why United Way funds programs at the Cleveland Rape Crisis center, a nonprofit that supports survivors of rape and sexual abuse with a focus on prevention. Serving more than 28,000 people in Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties, their ultimate vision is to completely eliminate sexual violence.
Today, CEO of Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, Sondra Miller, gave a live tour of the center – showcasing how your volunteerism, financial support and philanthropic passions can manifest into real actions.
