Major update of YWCA Dayton centers on trauma-informed care. A gut rehab of the seven-story, 118,000-square-foot building began this year with blended funding from historic tax credits, New Markets Tax Credits, supportive housing vouchers, and a capital campaign.

Because some capital campaign dollars were received sooner than anticipated, YWCA Dayton ended up borrowing only $500,000 from IFF/CDF.
