We have joined the City of Cleveland’s initiative to create a Ten-Year Housing and Investment Plan. We know housing is an issue important to the members of our network and our community at-large, and being a part of this process allows us to ensure that residents’ voices play a role in shaping the recommendations that this plan produces.
