Last Week to Early Vote

Last Week to Vote Early

Non-Profit Vote has worked with NEOCH over the last few election cycles to help us alert voters in Ohio of the importance of voting.  We have worked with Cleveland Votes and COHHIO this year to register and get people to vote.  Early voting is the best for homeless people and those who move frequently because the staff at the Board of Elections are professional and know all the rules.  You also do not need ID to vote early.  There are rides available and one weekend left for early voting.

The Bishop Cosgrove Center hosted the former Hand Up Gala also known as the Feast and Fellowship today.  This year it was hosted by staff and a chef from Jacks Casino of Cleveland.  Really nice looking table and excellent food for low income people on the East Side of Cleveland.  Also really good jazz music during the meal.

Campaign to End Homelessness Cleveland

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless had a kickoff of the Campaign to End Homelessness in an effort to meet the huge demand for shelter by families and women.  Pictured are the organizing committee enjoying the meal, Ramona setting up for the event, and Mayor Jackson meeting with the Tiffany Mitchell and family.  The group was welcomed by Mayor Frank Jackson who talked about how he sees other cities doing a horrible job of serving homeless people compared to Cleveland.  Jackson said that we have a good infrastructure, but we need to take the next step.  We heard from a family currently living in Laura's Home and from staff of the City Mission about the huge demand for help that they are seeing in the community.  We heard about the efforts to meet the demands by Natoya Walker Minor of the City of Cleveland and the City Councilman Kerry McCormack of Ohio City.  We gave out awards and thanked Thomas Dang for the poster he completed to urge people to vote.  We will have more on the campaign in the near future including the award winners.
