Background Statement

Since 1926 the YWCA of North Orange County has provided programs and services throughout the Depression, world wars and throughout dramatic social changes. In 1926 the Placentia Presbyterian Church, and the YWCA, formed the Girls Reserves. This program focused on building a strong mind, body and spirit of women at a time where the woman’s right to vote was being instituted. In the 1940’s the YWCA formed the Servicemen’s Wives’ Club, a place for women to seek fellowship, support and camaraderie. A childcare program was established to help women who needed to go back to work during the war. In 1950’s the Y-Wives Club was formed along with the Latin Y-Wives Club and Club Los Amigos. The same decade the YWCA formed the International Student’s Service Program helping young international college students to transition into college life. In 1968 the first Youth Employment Services program was developed winning recognition from the Department of Labor. In 1973 the first Career Fair for girls was held at Fullerton College. In 1984 the program moved to the City of Anaheim, located in the Downtown Community Center.To date the Youth Employment Services program has touched the lives of over 33,600 youth, 550 local businesses, and collaborates with the North Orange County Community Colleges, Regional Occupational Program, and Job Corps. In the mid 1990’s the early breast cancer screening program was created for multicultural, uninsured women. To date the program serves over 56 neighborhoods in Orange County, held in churches, temples, mosques, community and senior centers. A total of 120,000 multicultural, uninsured or underserved women received life saving early breast cancer screenings. In 2,000 the Thurmond Scholarship Program was established providing scholarships to re-entry women, 24 years or older. To date 114 women have received Thurmond Scholarships to attend Fullerton or CSUF, to achieve their academic goals. In 2006 the Prom Project and Marine Wives program was born. These programs were created to give girls and women free or gently used formals to attend their formal events with dignity, pride and self-confidence. A total of approx. 2,400 girls and wives of Enlisted Marines at Camp Pendleton have benefited from the program. Time may change our programs but not our values. We value Interfaith principles and embrace diversity, inclusiveness, respect, and acceptance welcoming people of all faiths to join our interfaith movement to better the lives of women and girls everywhere.

Impact Statement

Since 1995, we have provided over 120,000 early breast cancer screenings to low-income, at-risk, women, many immigrant women. Today we are the largest neighborhood early breast cancer detection program in Orange County,  annually screening over 4,000 poor, multicultural, uninsured or medically underserved women 40 years and older. These are women who fall through the cracks of the medical care system, go undiagnosed or diagnosed at a later, more life threatening stage. A total of 31 breast cancers were diagnosed last year. 
Youth employment services reach 2,100 at-risk, low income multicultural youth 14-22 yrs. These are youth who have separated from traditional high schools and are attending independent study or have dropped out of high school altogether.  A total of 89% are from low to extremely low family income, 41% from female headed households. YES provides navigation services for job search, employment, resume building, interview skills, applying on-line and career navigation to community colleges and/or regional occupational programs. 
Since 2007, we have provided over 1,400 new or gently used formals to high school senior girls from low income families and over 1,200 formals to enlisted Marine wives based at Camp Pendleton to attend formal events with pride, dignity and self-confidence. Over 25 high schools in O.C., participate. We support enlisted Marine wives of the First Battalion at Camp Pendleton. A simple program that brings glimpses of empowering moments to many building positive self esteem and self confidence.
To date we have distributed over $100,000 in college scholarships to re-entry adult women, 24 years or older, to attend Fullerton College or California State University, Fullerton. The scholarships helps both Bachelor and Graduate re-entry students reach their academic goals. 
In collaboration with the Family Violence Coalition in coordination with the Family Law Courts, County of Orange, we present professional workshops focusing on Generational Violence. Our goal is to provide a platform for agencies addressing family violence from birth to senior years, drawing in animal abuse agencies to identify, understand and prevent family violence. Our primary outcome is to draw together in a central resource all of the agencies to create one voice to coordinate, and network resources to end family violence.

Needs Statement

We provide services to medically underserved, at-risk women, many immigrant women. Our neighborhood link to breast cancer screening program provides direct, culturally sensitive access to early breast cancer screening modalities, overcoming obstacles to care such as lack of transportation, language barriers, childcare, education (32% of the women we serve have no formal education) and fear of institutions due to their immigration status. This outreach annually costs $320,000 to fund. Our most pressing need is direct funding or grant opportunities. Our second most pressing need is underwriting or funding of our Youth Employment Services that provide direct one-on-one assistance to at-risk, low-income students, 14-22 years, in the East Anaheim area. Approx. 80% of our youth are from extremely low income families, 40% are from female headed households, 60% are from independent study and many are experiencing the technological gap leaving them behind in applying for jobs. The program's budget is $80,000 and help to underwrite this program is requested.  The third most pressing need is underwriting the Prom Project that helps high school girls from low income families attend their prom with dignity, self-confidence and pride. It is the moments in time that help build self-confidence and the prom is one of those milestones, especially in this media driven society. Both donations and in-kind contributions of accessories, formals, shoes are needed. The forth and fifth most pressing need is human capacity building. Our staff multi-tasks and we are in need of hiring a Marketing/Public Relations Director and a full-time Development Director. We would need an underwriting capacity of $50,000 for each position

CEO Statement

The YWCA of North Ornage County is unique because it is a grassroot organization and seperately incorporated. It can effectively respond to the local needs of women and families living in Orange County.  Programs and services are overseen by a multicultural staff and volunteers who think, feel and believe in the mission of the organization. The mission is driven by passion and belief that we can make a difference in the lives of others.  The YWCA of North Orange County saves lives through early breast cancer screening programs for uninsured or underserved women and provides opportunities for higher education, economic and personal growth. We are a good steward of the public trust and it is because of our staff, our quality governance and the checks and balances instilled in our management that makes me proud to lead this organization as its Executive Director.

Board Chair Statement

The YWCA of North Orange County faces many challenges as a small grassroots organization and it had to reinvent itself to continue to grow. In 2009, the organization elected the first male on the board in 86 years and worked hard toward achieving financial sustainability. We created the Grace Dodge Heritage Society with the help of the Orange County Community Foundation and rolled up our sleeves to enter into social media. We created an organizational  facebook, twitter, updated our webpage, created electric newsletters through Constant Contact, and updated our financial tools accepting credit card donations. We have been able to blend generations into action with a presence on Facebook and Twitter while maintaining strong relationships with our donors who have supported us for over 30+ years. I continue to support the YWCA of North Orange County because I believe in its mission and get direct results. It is my personal investment, my passion for changing the quality of lives of the people that live in my community that I stay involved.

Neighborhood Early Breast Cancer Screening for Medicallyl Unserserved, Multicultural Women

The YWCA has the largest neighborhood, multicultural early breast cancer screening program in Orange County. Since 1995, over 100,000 medically underserved, low income women, 40 years or older, have received free or low cost early detection breast cancer screening including mammograms, clinical breast exams, and breast self awareness education. This program makes quality breast cancer screening and breast self awareness available to women in their own neighborhoods and in a manner consistent with their cultural beliefs. Screenings and workshops are held in local churches, temples, senior centers, and other community sites. Educational events include health fairs, cultural festivals, and women’s groups. Our neighborhood screenings overcome barriers such as linguistic isolation, lack of transportation, lack of childcare and fear of large clinical settings. We serve many of the county’s hardest to reach women with access to quality breast care. 

Budget  $264,936.00
Category  Health Care, General/Other Early Intervention & Prevention
Population Served Females At-Risk Populations People/Families of People with Cancer
Program Short-Term Success 
Educate and screen 5,000 women to get annual mammograms, clinical breast exams and open the door for uninsured or underserved women to receive low cost or free screening, diagnostic and treatment services, resulting in approximately 30 cancer diagnosed that would otherwise have gone undetected or detected at a later and more deadly stage.
Open the door for 900 women who do not qualify for YWCA and navigate them to breast cancer screenings, diagnostic and treatment services through other resources appropriate to their individual eligibility.
65% of women educated through YWCA events will demonstrate an increased understanding of the impact breast self-awareness including  knowing the risk, getting annual mammograms, what is normal, and make healthy lifestyle choices. Women will be motivated to make screening appointments either through the YWCA or with their own providers. 
Provide 300-400 neighborhood diagnostic services in neighborhood settings reducnig the time between the discovery of abnormal findings to diagnostic studies to surgery to treatment.  
Program Long-Term Success 

The goal of the early breast cancer detection program is to save lives by reducing barriers to quality breast cancer early detection screening, diagnosis and treatment through culturally sensitive and dignified multi-ethnic education and outreach. We navigate women to breast health screening and diagnostic programs. Since 1995, over 100,000 medically unserserved women participated in our neighborhood screening program who would have otherwise fallen through the cracks, gone undiagnosed or diagnosed at a later, more expensive and live threthening stage. We received national recognition in 2014 by the Avon Foundation on the Avon Breast Health Outreach Grantee Spotlight presenting our neighborhood outreach program. 

Our outreach with Alinea Medical Imaging has enabled us to provide neighborhood diagnostic services to women who present abnormal in the same neighborhoods where the women live. This approach adresses the timeliness of care as women who are diagnosed with an abnormal mammogram still face obsticles to care such as lack of transportation, language barriers, childcare and fear of large medical centers.  Many women delay diagnostic tests, especially in at-risk, low income communities which results in late-stage cancer diagnosis. Providing timely services in neighborhoods where medically underserved women live will reduce the time gaps if cancerous tumors are found, to surgery and treatment. Our most recent achievemen was being profiled in the Center for Effective Philantrophy's national study, "Assessing To Achieve High Performance: What Nonprofits Are Doing and How Foundations Can Help."  We were only 1 of 3 non-profits highlighted nationwide and we were recognized for our high level evaluation strategy to track timeliness of care. 
Program Success Monitored By 
Number of women screened:  crew chief reports, physician reports and Avon Client Intake Forms.  Number of diagnostic referrals: physician and mammography vendor reports. Number of cancer diagnosis: physician reports.  Number of referrals to other resources: phone log reports. Education: Pre-post tests taken by clients.
Number of diagnostic tests referred by physician reports and screened by Alinea Medical Imaging.  
Examples of Program Success  In 2014, the YWCA screened or led to screening over 5,410 multicultural, uninsured women, 40 years or older. who were uninsured or underserved  Our multicultural staff, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese, reached out  with culturally sensitive early breast cancer screenings and education that addressed cultural fears, anxieties and sensitive navigation into the medical care system. Speaking the language, having physicians of the same culture,and hosting screenings in trusted community neighborhood sites such as churches, temples, mosques, senior, community and breast centers drew at-risk women who would not have been reached. Obstacles such as lack of transportation, language barriers, childcare and fear of large medical centers were overcome. Last year, 6,100 uninsured or underserved women were screened, that is our success story. These are women who would go undiagnosed or diagnosed at a later and more deadly stage. A total of 31 women were diagnosed, saving lives.

CEO Comments

We are a small but passionate, grassroots, human service, nonprofit organization.  If you look at our organization, it is made up of people who both serve and receive services from our organization. Passion is what drives the work that we do and  how we are governed. Our passion is coupled with a belief that we are making a difference in the lives of others. In direct alignment with a person's passion and values, is the  challenge to help move the YWCA into a more powerful and focused direction. We need to find generations of passionate individuals, young adults, adults, and seniors, who believe in our mission and ask them to chose the YWCA as their charity of choice. Right now we are at a tipping point and our challenge is to find individuals to continue to move the YWCA forward into the future as an effective efficient and successful nonprofit. We need people with a diversified skill base, multi-level experiences, and compassion for others. Look at our webpage or call your Executive Director, Diane Masseth-Jones, at (714) 871-4488 to learn more about the YWCA or to volunteer, make a donation or participate in our board or committee governance.

CEO Comments

Our largest program is our Neighborhood Early Breast Cancer Screening Program for the medically underserved.  The challenge this year is the transitional phase of the National Healthcare Program or Covered California and how it has affected our program. Because there is an impression that everyone has access to medical insurance or care, and will qualify, funding for our Early Breast Cancer Screening program for the medically underserved has declined. In reality, we are reaching the poorest, at-risk women who do not qualify for Covered California and still need help. We have also seen a steep rise in breast cancers in this population. The standard is 5 breast cancers per 1,000 women screened. We screened 2,045 women from January 1 to June 30 and have found 14 breast cancers. This is our opportunity to assure that no woman falls through the cracks and goes undiagnosed, diagnosed at a later, more life thretening stage.
We are good stewards of the public's trust. We are a small, grassroots organization where 99.4% of what we raise stays in Orange County. Only 0.6% goes to our National Office, the YWCA of the USA to pay for advocacy and branding services. We have a Finance and Audit Committee that meets rountinely and our financial status is reviewed by the board at every board meeting. We are transparent, adhearing to our internal controls, financial and investment policies.
