Cleveland Christian Home
The Christian Church in Ohio has a long-standing relationship with the Cleveland Christian Home, which is a member of the Disciples Care Network, a national organization of human service agencies in covenant with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Many congregations have chosen to give directed gifts to CCH, remitted either through the region or directly to the Cleveland Christian Home.
The Cleveland Christian Home exists to be a haven of hope and healing for children, youth and families struggling with mental illness, abuse and neglect. Its vision is to be a center of excellence providing the highest quality services to meet the physical, emotional, intellectual, cultural and spiritual needs of children, youth and families.
Begun in 1900 as an orphanage, the CCH has grown to provide a wide variety of services from in-school counseling to residential treatment for boys to independent living for teenage mothers.
Cleveland Christian Home's main area of service is Cuyahoga County, but programs are also run in Summit County, and communities across Ohio occasionally send young people to our residential services at the Home.
From 2010-2013 CCH is conducting a Partnership Campaign to reduce bond debts acquired when it bought its assets from the former National Benevolent Association.
In addition to monetary donations, goods and services are also needed. Lists of needs for baby items, school uniforms, school supplies, and Christmas gifts may be found at www.cchome.org. Silent auction items valued at $50 or more are welcome year-round, as are donations to facilities improvements. Contact the Development Department to discuss other possible donations. To arrange drop-off time and date call 216.688-4140 ask for Maria Livers or Donna Ryant.
The Alice M. Cotabish Society recognizes those who have named CCH in their will or estate plan.
