Summit Voice Mail

Nice Article in the Akron Beacon Journal on Monday

On Monday, the Akron Beacon Journal had a very nice article about the introduction of Community Voice Mail down in Summit County. Nice photograph of a person who had successfully used the program to find a job and stabilize her housing, and a good profile of the program. Our old staff person, Mike Gibbs, helped start up the program down in Summit County and now has distributed 500 boxes to people trying to find housing in the Akron area. He worked for NEOCH for seven years starting the program from scratch and helped it grow to the second or third largest program in the United States. We miss Mike, but appreciate that he has become the Johnny Appleseed of Voice Mail in Ohio. It is nice to see some good news about homelessness every so often in the media.
