The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland seeks to improve the community’s capacity to help families and individuals overcome the challenges of poverty in a sustainable way. To that end, the foundation has invested significant time and resources in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood. The foundation recently released reports on the progress of two major initiatives in the neighborhood.

Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood

Middle grade education exposure strategy
After five years of planning and implementation of a middle grade education exposure strategy, the foundation has shared progress on the strategy, as well as experiences and lessons learned, and the opportunities and challenges of moving a niche strategy forward. The foundation invested more than $1 million from 2008 through 2013 for this important work that has impacted the lives of many urban public school children in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood.
