SOAR (Survivors Overcoming Abuse and Rape) Together
Sep 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

A key component of an individual’s ability to recover from a traumatic experience is social connection. YWCA’s support groups for those impacted by sexual violence are intended to be a low-barrier point of service for anyone to anonymously seek out help, or to simply learn more about violence in our community. A participant does not have to be a survivor of sexual violence in order to attend, and participants do not have to share any details of an assault. Facilitated by trained YWCA Dayton staff and open to anyone affected by sexual violence: survivors, family, friends, and/or loved ones. Come as you are; no registration necessary.

Voices Against Violence Breakfast
Oct 10 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am
Voices Against Violence Breakfast @ Schuster Center Wintergarden

Each October, YWCA Dayton recognizes the strength and resilience of domestic violence survivors at a special fundraising event to support YWCA Dayton’s domestic violence shelter and support services, including its 24-hour crisis hotline. Formerly called the YWomen Breakfast, it has been refreshed (and expanded!) as the Voices Against Violence Breakfast and the Voices Against Violence Lunch to better reflect the platform it provides for both survivors and supporters to be a voice for change.

This event also features the recognition of our annual Marsha Froelich Survivor Award, which honors women who embody Froelich’s spirit of survivorship and resilience and give graciously to others. The late Marsha Froelich, a former development director at YWCA Dayton, was a fearless leader who advocated — at work and in her spare time — for the under-served, the women of the YW, and those within the community who did not have a voice. This award recognizes a woman whose words and actions serve to exemplify, inspire, set an example, and celebrate the spirit of a survivor who has overcome the odds and continued on an amazing journey, personally or professionally.

Registration coming soon! Interested in serving as a table captain? Contact events@ywcadayton.org.

Shine Your Light 5K + Vigil @ RiverScape MetroPark

Artemis Center and YWCA Dayton will, for the fourth year, host a collaborative friend and fundraiser to promote awareness of domestic violence and raise funds to support domestic violence victims.
