I’m pleased to announce that the National Association of Housing and Redevelopment Officials honored CMHA with 14 Merit Awards and four nominations for Excellence Awards at the association’s summer conference in Portland, Oregon. This national recognition celebrates innovative programs and activities. I would like to thank our numerous partners for helping us to create best practices that enrich the quality of life of those we serve. The submissions being considered for the Award of Excellence highlight: the Conversation Over Pizza program, the KeyBank Technology Center at Griot Village, Trees for Threes and Partnering for Family Success.
Conversation Over Pizza (C.O.P.): C.O.P. is a platform for residents to engage in productive dialogue and develop solutions for community challenges such as how to reduce crime and violence. This resident-driven approach serves as a catalyst for building stronger community relationships and safer neighborhoods. This program has been duplicated in several housing authorities across the country.
Technology Center Bridges Digital Divide: CMHA, Fairfax Renaissance Development Corporation, ConnectHome and KeyBank are several key partners who have collaborated to address the digital divide that exists within low-income families through increasing broadband access, technical training, digital literacy programs, and devices for residents in assisted housing units. The KeyBank Technology Learning Center at CMHA’s Griot Village, an inter-generational housing complex, has resulted in increased connectivity and access to resources for seniors and youth.
Trees for Threes: A program in which PriceWaterhouseCoopers and the Cleveland Cavaliers commit to planting one tree for every three-pointer made during all regular season home games. In 2015, with help from CMHA residents, the Western Reserve Land Conservancy, Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc., the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, and the Davey Tree Expert Company, more than 300 trees were planted at CMHA’s Heritage View Homes and Anton Grdina Elementary School.
Reuniting Families: A high preference was created for those CMHA applicants participating in the Partnering for Family Success (PFS) Program with Cuyahoga County. The result was families referred through FrontLine Service were interviewed and housed more quickly thus increasing the chances of families reuniting and children spending less time in the foster care system. Partners include housing providers, referral agencies, a project manager and fiscal agent, a government advisor and transaction coordinator and an independent evaluator.
Merit Award Winners: Active Shooter Training for Employees, Home for the Holidays Program for Veterans, Youth Police Academy Builds Trust, Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.), Cleveland’s First Fitness Zone, CMHA Earth Day Celebration, Police Explorers Program Builds Community, CMHA Voices Choir, Tenant Accounts Receivable Online Inquiry System, Purchase Card Program Training, Conversations Over Pizza (C.O.P.), Technology Center Bridges Digital Divide, Trees for Threes and Reuniting Families.
