The Central States Region Mission Statement
The Central States Region started almost 80 years ago with the formation of the Ohio chapter in 1925. The mission of the region is to organize, develop and strengthen Hadassah units by providing services that respond to the unit’s goals and needs, and to act as a liaison between the unit and National Hadassah.
Initially, the region consisted of all cities in Ohio with the exception of those near Pittsburgh. By 1927, the Akron, Barberton, Canton, Cleveland, Dayton, Findlay, Lorain, Toledo, Warren, Wooster and Youngstown chapters were chartered. In 1928, region "chairmen" (now known as presidents) were part of the National Board of Hadassah for the first time.
Today, the Central States Region encompasses 10,000 members, associates and supporters in Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and West Virginia.
