WOMEN’S CRISIS CENTER DECLARED AN IMPACT 100 GRANT FINALIST
Hebron, Kentucky- Women’s Crisis Center seeks to expand Green Dot, a violence prevention program, into 3 additional high schools in Northern Kentucky. Women’s Crisis Center will present their project to the Impact 100 membership on September 13, 2016 at the Annual Awards Celebration.
Green Dot shows a 40% reduction in sexual violence and a 50% reduction in other forms of violence in high schools where implemented. It successfully reduces rates of violence through increasing bystander behaviors and changing cultural norms. Currently, Women’s Crisis Center is partnering with 6 Northern Kentucky High Schools and 1 Cincinnati Public School to offer Green Dot at no cost to the schools.
Impact 100 empowers women to dramatically improve lives by collectively funding significant grants which make a lasting impact in our community. This year, 4 grants of $101,500 will be awarded. Since its inception in 2001, Impact 100 has donated over $2.8 million to transform life in the Greater Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky region.
