Each of our neighborhoods has a great number of assets and resources available to its residents. On this page you will find contact information for the various Community Development Corporations, City Council Representatives, as well as other Non-profit Organizations serving our community.
Our listings of Important Numbers, Parks, Pools, Schools, and Libraries are found on their own pages in this section of the site.
CDCs provide a range of services meant to stabilize, revitalize or support neighborhoods. Typical programming includes organizing, economic development, affordable housing or real estate development. CDCs can act as intermediaries for city services and a good starting point for assistance with neighborhood issues.

This list is likely never to be comprehensive. However, we do hope to provide information for as many organizations as possible who share our goals for the downtown and near west side neighborhoods of Cleveland. If you have an organization you believe would be a good addition to our list, please email the name and URL for the organization information to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can determine if it is appropriate to include in our listing.
Please visit these organizations’ websites to learn more about how they serve our community.
