Transitional housing next step for single mothers - The City Mission of Cleveland, Ohio

Crain's Cleveland Business Opinion: Transitional housing next step for single mothers

Since 1910, The City Mission has served tens of thousands of Cleveland residents struggling with homelessness and crisis. While our mission — providing help and hope to all people through the transforming power of God’s love — remains the same, our services have always adapted to the needs of the community.

In 2014, The City Mission began a program dedicated to addressing housing insecurity in Northeast Ohio. Through our graduate-to-homeowner initiative, New Horizons, we have learned about the importance of wraparound services and the continued need for more affordable housing in Cleveland.

The men, women and children of The City Mission’s campuses (Laura’s Home Women’s Crisis Center and Crossroads Men’s Crisis Center) stay in our facilities for a median length of 9-12 months while participating in our long-term program.

In 2014, we noticed that single mothers in particular were struggling to find affordable housing upon graduation from Laura’s Home.
