Homeless Street Card Available to Direct Homeless People to Places that Can Help
The Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless announced the publication of the Homeless Street Card for 2015 to 2016. We are so thankful to Hotcards for stepping forward and printing this one page resource guide after the Cleveland Clinic turned down our request. The Homeless Street Card is a front and back piece of paper updated every year that contains extensive information on resources such as shelters, meal sites, job training agencies, health clinics, chemical dependency services and drop in centers. This valuable and convenient resource makes it easy for homeless individuals to find the assistance they need to get out of their situation.
It is easy to read, regularly updated, and can be folded up to carry around. Through the generosity of Hotcards, we were able to print 10,000 Homeless Street Cards and have begun to distribute to individuals, shelters, hospitals, schools, police stations, and libraries. Hotcards did an amazing job this year printing the Street Card on durable and bright paper. We believe that this is the nicest version of the Street Card that we have ever printed over the last 26 years in Cleveland. Hotcards does custom flyers, full color brochures, business cards, event tickets, custom postcards, door hangers and political printing and can be found at www.hotcards.com.
Many use our website to download and print out copies of the Street Card at http://www.neoch.org/street-card/. It is the most popular section of our website. We will post a shorter version of the Street Card on our website for those who do not have the legal sized paper available. In addition, NEOCH has a Family Street Card and Veteran’s Street Card on our website to print and distribute. We hope that these one page guides will shorten a person's stay on the streets or in the shelters. We hope that they can use this resource guide to move out of homelessness quickly. With all the changes that take place with programs opening and closing it is important to have a trusted resource guide available to assist homeless people.
