Children and families in the Near East Side face a growing equity gap today. Traumatic experiences, food insecurity, fears of community safety and inadequate educational resources are all holding our neighbors back from reaching their full potential. Eliminating these challenges requires the support of a whole community. This February, these leaders and institutions have taken action towards amore just neighborhood with the Eldon & Elsie Ward Family YMCA by sponsoring Empowering Our Future: The Ward Legacy Event.

We are excited to have Power 107.5 as our media sponsor for this year's Ward Legacy event. DJ Mr. King will be the emcee for this powerful event full of community, connection and storytelling.
