Added Issue 85, New Photos on Front Page and New Bridge Support Newsletters

We have added a link to the Issue #85 archive of newspaper stories.  This comes from July 2008 and features stories from around the United States.  There is an article on Care on the Square and the Photojournalism class.  There is a Downtown Cleveland Alliance messaging article about panhandling.  There is a feature on the new Street Card, and a profile of Raymond Jacobs.  There are commentaries about the lack of housing and problems with the health care system in the United States. 

We added a new group of photos from the Hand Up Gala or what was known in 2015 as the Feast and Fellowship meal at the Bishop Cosgrove Center in October. 

We have caught up on the Bridge Support newspapers on the member section of the website.  This is our weekly newsletter tailored for homeless social service providers.  Again, you need to login to the website in order to read the member section of the website. 

Finally, we added a copy of the Street Card to the website.  This is a smaller version that can be printed on letter sized paper.  In many offices and libraries there is not the ability to print on legal sized paper.  The Street Card section of our website is the most popular part of the site.  This makes it easier to print and distribute.


Added Issue 83 of the Grapevine Added

We have added Grapevine #83 to the Archive.  We only have three left to add to the website.  This has the local and national news updates.  It also looks at the Sacremento lawsuit against their city over sweeps of their tent city.  There is a profile of Nate Hamm in his efforts to get off the streets.  There is an editorial about homelessness in America and the lack of patience for the population.  We also published a detailed story about the efforts to change the location for where food is served in Downtown Cleveland.  We go through by date our mediation to prevent an unconstitutional law being passed and yet not restrict access to food in the City.  Finally, there is an article about Lee Fisher attending the CAHA meeting to talk about development and affordable housing. 


Added Family Street Card, More Stats, Bridge Support, and Updated School Liaisons

We updated the Family Street Card and posted it on the website on the Street Card Page.  We also updated the School Liaisons in Cuyahoga County.  These are both available from the "Find Help" button of our website.  The Family Street Card helps the increasing number of families we are seeing in Cuyahoga County.  The homeless liaisons are those individuals in each school district who can help with a child's wait list. 

We have updated our Research and Statistics section of the website with data on the number of Evictions in Cleveland in 2014.  We also added an updated section of the number of homeless children in the school district for 2014-15 school year.  In addition, we put a new graph on the Information Blog of the website. 

We added two new Bridge Support newsletters on the member section of the website and we have regularly updated the Member Hub with additional content.  You must login to view this section of our website.


Added Two New Issues of the Grapevine/Chronicle

We have placed Issue #82 of the Homeless Grapevine to the Newspaper Archive. It has a couple of stories by the National Coalition for the Homeless including a challenge for the Presidential candidates to sleep on the streets of DC.  There is story about the Furniture Bank and a commentary about squatting in Cleveland. We also closed Aviation Overflow Shelter and the promise to replace this shelter.  There was a piece of advoacy about the Public Square over, and an interview with Covering Cleveland non-profit agency.

We also added the last issue of the Street Chronicle to the archive.  This featured a number of articles from vendors including an article about Steve Harvey overcoming homelessness.  There is a summary of local news updates. There were a couple of articles about the tough winter.  The paper also had survey of what people found most surprising when they showed up at a homeless shelter. 


Improved the Member Section of the Website

We have improved the member section of the website.  This additional content is only available to those who login to the site.  You have to be a paid member of the Coalition to log in to the website.  We have moved our weekly Bridge Support newsletter behind the pay wall and have placed all the recent issues on the site.  We have added content to the member only hub/blog.  We have been posting some of the calls we get and some of the problems we see in the shelters in Cleveland.  We have also added a new page called the Deal of the Month or Quarter.  Cleveland Public Theatre is the first group to offer a special deal to NEOCH members.  Tell us what you think and what additional content we could place here.
