Added Bridge Supports, Updated Voting Section, Handup Gala

We have added two new issues of the Bridge Support Newsletter.  This is the weekly newsletter that we send out to outreach teams locally.  You can check out the archive here

With the Federal Court Decision today reinstating Golden Week, we updated our voting section.  We have updated a number of the pages to include the expanded early voting and posted a blog entry about the federal court order. 

We have also updated our auction for the Hand Up Gala.  We are going to be sending out announcements and remittance envelopes this next week to those who have supported the Gala in the past.  We will have auction packages this year instead of individual items for those who donate.  We have posted the auction packages on our website here.   We hope that you can support this important fundraiser especially with Cosgrove celebrating 20 years in Cleveland.



Member Update, Homeless Voting and DV Stats

We posted a new discussion about the need for shelter regulations on our member hub of our website (must login and go to the member section).  This looks at the almost year long discussion of improving the oversight and regulations of the shelters in Cleveland.  If you forgot your password or want to become a member just e-mail us.

We added a page on Quick answers to common questions about voting in Ohio to our website with links to many of the local and statewide groups.  Please remember that you can click on the "Vote" button on the bottom of our website to link to the homeless voting section of our website.  We also have materials you can print out and use including vote by mail forms, registration forms, and brochures. 

We posted a bunch of statistics on Domestic Violence locally.  Both on our information blog and on our statistics page, we posted a look a the number of incidents in Ohio as well as the number of fatalities.  (Why does Akron have so many deaths as a result of domestic violence?) We also posted the number of shelter beds exclusively dedicated to domestic violence in the larger counties and all the counties in Northeast Ohio.  Check it all out.

We regularly update our blog.

If you have comments that you want to share with NEOCH we also have a discussion on our blog.


Posted Issue #79 of Grapevine and New Bridge Supports

We have posted an issue that was on the streets of Cleveland in early 2007 of the Homeless Grapevine newspaper (Only 11 left to post).   This issue has local and national news articles.  There is an article about the Resident Council and a Welfare Rights group.  NEOCH settled its lawsuit with the State of Ohio over voting in November of 2006.  There was a commentary about Heading Home report, the Thanksgiving count, and the voting rights of homeless people.  There is a feature on the celebration in Cincinnati of buddy grey.  

We also posted the last two Bridge Support newsletters for outreach teams.  We took a week off so these are the two issues for August so far.  There is a quick summary of all the information for outreach teams to use to assist their clients. 


Posted Grapevine #78 and IRS 990 Tax Return

In an effort to be transparent, we have added our 2013 990 IRS tax return to the website.  This is the tax form that every non-profit in the United States must file.  We have the last five years of tax returns on the site.  You can see how bad the downturn was on NEOCH. 

We have posted a new issue of the Homeless Grapevine #78 which was published at the end of 2006.  This issue has local news. There is a profile of vendor, Arthur and his family and a profile of a New England educational programs.  There are a number of commentaries and a profile of Robert Egger from DC Kitchen.


Updated the Information on what you should do if you become homeless

Updated the section on What Do I do If I Become Homeless in Cleveland under the Find Help Tab on the website.  We have also included a flyer with the same information so that you can print it out, hang it up or save the information for future use.  211/First Call for Help has the same information, but it is good to have it on one page.  Let us know what you think and what other information we need to include.
