Domestic Violence in Ohio

The above figures come from the Ohio Attorney General Report on Domestic Violence.  The AG collects stats from all the local police forces to come up with these stats.  We have posted more information on our Research section of our website.

This is from the Ohio Domestic Violence Network advocacy and public policy agency.  These are shelter beds exclusively reserved for people fleeing violence and not shelter beds with dual use purposes.

Homeless Kids Continue to Rise in Cleveland

Trend is not positive for the homeless children and youth in the Cleveland Metro Schools.  Remember that the Cleveland Schools follow the most logical broadest definition of homelessness which is different than the limited definition that HUD uses for homelessness. Even after the downturn, the number of homeless kids continue to increase in Cleveland. There are almost 4 times as many homeless kids as there were in 2000 in Cleveland.

These stats come from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District Project Act--August 2014.  A school year is defined as July 1 through June 30 of the next year.  For more information 216-592-7405.

Evictions Filed Over Last Few Years

From the Cleveland Housing Court statistics distributed at the Cuyahoga Affordable Housing Meeting July 2014.  Scheduled are evictions that are filed and not withdrawn before the court date comes up.  Set outs are when the bailiff is forced to go to the property and escort the household and/or their possessions out of the property.  Some of the set outs involve moving the items into storage other times their possessions are set out onto the curb.
