The Community Development team works alongside community members and community organizations to make Cleveland stronger by empowering neighborhoods through collective action. Our team believes that by addressing communities, together, we can build solutions that create equitable conditions in which not only children, but everyone can thrive.
CPH envisions a city where all communities flourish, and community leaders continue to advocate and prioritize the well-being of the community.
The goal of our Wraparound strategy is to find ways to overcome obstacles to student’s success.
We design a plan to give supports throughout the school day, whether it is academic, social, or behavioral. Since 2014, CPH has partnered with CMSD to bring a full-time Wraparound Site Coordinator to each of our schools. In partnership with strategic community organizations, we provide a broad array of services such as academic tutoring, food assistance, housing, medical services, out-of-school-time programs, parent university, and family engagement events.
The most effective Wraparound programs do not disappear when a child walks off the school grounds. Our goal is to follow than plan from school to family to the community.
The Community Building program seeks to expand our wraparound services outside of the schools and into the community.
We prioritize partnering with strategic community organizations to engage and support the existing resources in each neighborhood and identify opportunities to create new ones. We seek to get to know the community to later remove barriers for participation.
This program celebrates the diversity of the community and highlights its importance to the neighborhood’s key stakeholders while supporting arts and culture development.
