What has happened to the YWCA? It is being run into the ground by the excutive director. She has no clue what she is doing. The mission of the YW is to empower and she clearly does not know what that means. She could give a shit about the victims of sexual assault and domestic not to mention her staff. She verbally abuses her staff. She gave up one the biggest fundraisers the YW had,riggiefest, which was well recieved by the community and raised over 25,000 for the YW each and every year. Another well recieved community event, Freedom Run-CANCELLED. The children's center at the courthouse is closing. Natalie could care less about all the children that are going to be affected by that. The place is a mess!! The staff are told if you open your mouth expect your pink slip!!!!! What is wrong with board of directors! GET RID OF HER!! That place won't be open in a year!!!!

YWCA was being managed by a bunch of morons before Natalie was hired. Should have been closed before she came on board. Natalie is very professional, means business and makes a difference. Maybe Riggiefest was making money but that money may have been used to line the pockets of individuals under the guise of benefiting the Y. Who knows! Myself and a few other members quit a local "women in business group" when we learned that of the $3,000 raised in the name of the Steven Swan Humane Society, when "out of nowhere" $1,000 went to the banquet facility (who's female family owner was one of the founding members of this group). The Humane Society got the least...$350 to be exact. Alot of fund raising events are not monitored by the state's attorney general's office as they should be. Don't ask me why they bother to have an office in the County Bldg. Guidelines are now in place since the Children's Miracle Network fiasco in the 90's.

You ought to see what she ALLEGEDLY (legal disclaimers here!) did to the United Way director in the mid 1990s. Drove her batty. Broke her so bad she left.

ALLEGEDLY.

There. All legal now.

quite the contrary! Before Natalie's inception, I went there seeking help for domestic violence. What a JOKE that place was. I mean a JOKE! Waste of my time, taxpayer money and fund raising efforts.

Since when is it wrong to actually manage a place and rid the employee population of unprofessional morons.

I hope they replace the Y with an effective program for domestic violence victims because this place has become a shelter for payroll baggage.

Why would anyone from Olean,Ithaca,Cortland or Watertown have any concern with what the YWCA in utica is doing? Do you have no problems in your home towns? Or are you just a coward to say your from Utica? Do you know what you are talking about? Give some details.
