Women In Transition - History 
Initially known as The Displaced Homemakers program, The Women in Transition Program was created in March of 1978 by the Ohio General Assembly as a pilot program. It is rumored that a wife of one of the Vice President’s pushed for the program and the program began on Cuyahoga Community College’s Eastern Campus. The original program started through the counseling department as a credited course. The initial purpose of the program was to provide services and referrals to divorced women, women with limited skills, and women who no longer had financial security.

Through the years the program has thrived under different leaders, rally trips to Columbus, and new initiatives.

In 2006, the program changed its name to the Women in Transition (WIT) Program. The program has continued through grant support and individual donations and is subsidized through the College’s budget. The current program serves women who are experiencing any transitional phase in their lives. The program has evolved with the times, always focused on fulfilling the needs of the women it serves. Evolving populations took the program from being one focused on social services to a program that focused on making post-secondary education attainable. The current WIT program is focused on helping women transition to degree completion and workforce skill attainment.
