“Unity is one of Data Dimensions’ most important values,” said Jon Boumstein, President and CEO. “We strongly believe in giving back to the communities we are part of, and doing what we can to improve the lives of the people who live there. This award from YWCA Rock County will inspire us to continue our efforts and increase our community involvement.”
YWCA Rock County presented the award at its 40th Anniversary Women of Distinction Awards and praised Data Dimensions’ work in a press release: “You are truly one of the top companies in Rock County and incredibly supportive of many community events and organizations, including the YWCA.”
Data Dimensions is involved in a number of YWCA projects, including its “Fix the Flats” initiative, which aims to restore and maintain the Jeffris Flats apartment building in Janesville, which serves as transitional housing for women and children escaping domestic violence. In Sept. 2013, Data Dimensions donated $30,000 to renovate the facility, and Data Dimensions continues to give each family entering the Jeffris House a welcome basket of necessities in addition to beds, sheets, pillows, blankets and an inspirational wall hanging. Also, Data Dimensions provides each family a membership to the local YMCA. Thanks in part to the efforts of Data Dimensions, women and children seeking service from the YWCA enter the Jeffris apartments in a state of crisis but leave empowered. Many, in fact, return once they’re back on their feet to help other women and children in similar situations.
Also, in June 2014, Data Dimensions donated $50,000 to renovate the CARE House, a child advocacy center that, since 1993, has provided professional and compassionate care to thousands of victims of physical and sexual abuse and neglect.
