Seniors of Cleveland Respond to Housing Needs

From April, 2015, through January, 2016, The Center for Community Solutions conducted research and analysis to complete an assessment of the age-friendliness of Cleveland. Their method of collecting primary data from older residents had three components: facilitated focus group discussions, a comprehensive survey of a randomly selected representative sample of older adult residents, and a shorter outreach questionnaire distributed by service providers and the Department of Aging. In total, we collected feedback from well over 1,000 older adult residents of Cleveland. In addition, the project engaged dozens of community leaders, service providers, and stakeholders. Here is a summary of the report. We present the two stats regarding housing for seniors.
