New Stuff on the Website

Tons of NEW THINGS!!

Check out the new items on the NEOCH website. We have a bunch of new press releases and the letter to new Mayor about our priorities. We have also updated the Statistics and Strategies section to detail the problems with the Office of Homeless Services.

The most controversial piece was our top priority for the new Mayor of Cleveland. We asked that Mayor Jackson take more interest in the City/County Office of Homeless Service to curtail the 20 straight years of increases in homelessness. We need the Office to take leadership in solving homelessness. The Office has had 11 or 12 years to make a change, and we still have people freezing to death, and an ever expanding shelters that will eventually bankrupt the County. We need someone to work on preventing homelessness, proper oversight of the shelters, and innovative ideas to move people out of shelters. Read all about the problems and our solutions on the website.
