Project Woman

Project Woman is dedicated to ending domestic violence and sexual assault by providing services and programs to protect, educate, and empower.  Community volunteers founded the agency in 1974 as a 1-room rape crisis center.

Today, as a non-profit 501c3, we operate a full range of rape crisis and domestic violence services.  These include an emergency shelter for victims of domestic violence and/or sexual assault and their children, a 24-hour crisis line, individual counseling, support groups, case management, victim advocacy, community education and prevention, children’s programming, 24-hour hospital advocacy and a greatly-needed needed transitional housing program.

Project Woman is a Council on Accreditation (COA)-accredited domestic violence and sexual assault service provider.  We are a member of the Ohio Domestic Violence Network, and Ohio Alliance to End Sexual Violence and the National Network to End Domestic Violence.

A SIMPLE MISSION STATEMENT GUIDES CANCER SUCKS!®

“Provide a forum for those who have lost loved ones to cancer while aggressively raising money to find a cure. No one should have to go through what millions of cancer victims, survivors and those left behind have endured.”

Cancer Sucks was established out of the pain and frustration that comes from losing a loved one to cancer, combined with the desire to do what we can to prevent anyone from experiencing the same loss. The 1996 death of Donna Holland White was a devastating event and one that will never be forgotten. While undergoing treatments, surgeries, and the emotional roller coaster that comes with cancer, Donna still had time to think of others by making arrangements to have her body donated to cancer research at the time of her death. Cancer Sucks is a living memorial started by her family and dedicated to Donna. The organization is run by volunteers that have all been touched by cancer and focused on raising as much money for cancer research as possible. Corporate partnerships fund our overhead expenses allowing us to donate ALL the proceeds from our events to cancer research.
