New Video Posted for Street Voices

This is Quinton who is a high school student in Cleveland Ohio.  He is a trained speaker available to go to schools, church groups or housing groups to talk about his homeless experiences.  He comes from a military family and has struggled to maintain his schooling and extra curricular activities while his family attempts to find stable housing.  You can contact Ken at 216/432-0540 ext 106 if you would like to schedule any of our street voices speakers.

New Street Voices Video

Thanks to Brent for putting together another video of one of our Street Voices speakers.  Simona recently found housing and is now stable.  She is available to talk to religious groups and civic organizations in the County. Here is a link to the Street Voices page of our website.

Call Ken at NEOCH to schedule a time for the Street Voices speaker to participate in a meeting or present to your group today (216) 432-0540.  Simona is a single mom who found herself homeless, but we have high school students, older males and retired single women who can speak to your group.

New Street Voices Video Posted

We posted a new video featuring Angelo Anderson on the front of our website and in our Street Voices section of the website.  Most people are aware of Angelo and his long affiliation with the NEOCH.  Angelo was one of the men who approached NEOCH about printing the street newspaper that they were calling the Homeless Grapevine 21 years ago.   Angelo has been a long term speaker for our Street Voices program.  He raised himself out of homelessness to join the NEOCH staff and then became staff at the Salvation Army/Lutheran Metro Ministry main men's shelter in Cleveland.  This is a short promo for the Street Voices project, but Angelo would love to come out and speak to your group.  Call Ken at NEOCH to schedule a time for Angelo, Shari or Don or any of the others.
