We have added an Award Winner section of the website. This goes back to 2000 and highlights the awards NEOCH has given out every year. We typically give out an Advocate of the Year and Volunteer of the Year award every year. We have given out Media Personality of the Year Award and Voting Awards in the past. We will add the Ione Biggs Award Winner's Profile in the near future.
We have also added Issue #74 to the Grapevine archive. This was in January of 2005, when a new Mayor was taking over at City Hall. There are a number of letters and commentaries asking for new initiatives from the Mayor. We go through the funding of the shelters locally and the Continuum of Care in this issue. There was a story about the introduction of the Housing Cleveland website and a commentary about how re-entry folks often face discrimination. There was the publication of the results of a survey about the street newspaper from readers. A bill to end long term homelessness was introduced this week and Lydia Bailey provided a good overview of homelessness.
