On the radio
In April 2018 we discussed Project CARE on “Cincinnati Edition,” a local radio show. Project CARE is a collaborative that provides comprehensive intervention and prevention services to people with intellectual or developmental disabilities who have experienced abuse.
Joining “Cincinnati Edition” to discuss protecting individuals with disabilities from abuse are Project CARE self-advocate Bree Moss; YWCA of Greater Cincinnati Project CARE Manager Holly Watson; and from Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services, Behavior Support Coordinator Kimi Remenyi and Service and Support Administrator Amanda Stegall, pictured with host Dan Hurley.
Project CARE (Community, Accessibility, Responsiveness and Education) is a partnership among YWCA of Greater Cincinnati, Hamilton County Developmental Disabilities Services, Women Helping Women and several other agencies in Hamilton County. This collaborative provides comprehensive intervention and prevention services to people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in our community. Additionally, Project CARE has 15 paid self-advocates who support and teach other women with disabilities about personal rights, empowerment and how to be safe in relationships.
This grant program is funded by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women.
If you or someone you know has a disability and is experiencing abuse, you can call our 24-hour hotline: (513) 559-6629. You can also call the YWCA Domestic Violence hotline (Hamilton County): (513) 872-9259.
