Scope and Contents

Documents concerning the administration, programs and management of the YWCA of Cleveland, Ohio. The administrative history of the association can be tracked through the iterations of constitutions and bylaws in addition to historical notes and association fact sheets. Information concerning the program implementation and community can be found in the local reports and industrial department reports. Local reports are reports of studies conducted at the local level and are used to report on, summarize and assess the association's program and activities. These reports include Clara Kaiser's report, "Plan of Action for the Cleveland YWCA" and "Social Accounting of the YWCA to Citizens of Cleveland." The first report is an assessment of the program of the YWCA of Cleveland with recommendations for development. The second report is a detailed examination of the duties and purpose of the YWCA as a social agency in Cleveland. The lengthy report is comprised of three sections and includes supporting documents such as program reports, pamphlets and department reports. Part one examines the purpose of the YWCA, part two describes program goals and activities and part three examines the association as an agent for change.
