We make community service fun.
Who have we helped, and where have we made a difference?
THE WEST SIDE CATHOLIC CENTER
The West Side Catholic Center is an extraordinary organization that responds to the needs of anyone, regardless of religious beliefs or geographical region. The WSCC has provided shelter, clothing, and food to those who need it free of cost since 1977. As stated on the organization's website, "...33% of Cleveland's residents and almost half of Cleveland's children live in poverty." The WSCC helps thousands of people who struggle with poverty every day and every person it helps is treated with respect, love, and hospitality.
ST. HERMan's house of hospitality
For over 35 years, St. Herman's House of Hospitality has served poor and homeless men by offering them hot meals, clothing, shelter, work opportunities, prayers, and above all, hospitality.

BEN FRANKLIN COMMUNITY GARDEN
THE BEN FRANKLIN COMMUNITY GARDEN
One of the largest community gardens in all of Ohio, the Benjamin Franklin Community Garden contains five acres of gardening plots that allow families to grow their own fruits, vegetables, and flowers. This community garden was founded in 1929, and every year since then has been filled with the dedication, pride, and hard work of all of the gardeners who plant there. This Cleveland Landmark also contains the Hunger Gardens, which are 20 individual gardens designated to produce thousands of pounds of vegetables for local hunger centers and food banks.

The Julie Adam's house
The Edna House
The Julie Adams House is a shelter for women who have suffered from addictions and drug abuse. While in recovery, the women there are given support and encouragement as they go through training sessions to prepare themselves to go back to an independent and responsible lifestyle. The Julie Adams House has changed the lives and outlooks of so many women and has given them a second chance at having a healthy life.
THE JULIE ADAM'S HOUSE
THE EDNA HOUSE
The Edna House is similar to the Julie Adams House in that it is a shelter for women who have suffered from addictions and drug abuse. The Edna House focuses on the dignity and self-respect of each woman in the house and fosters an environment where they will be able to learn how to live again: "At Edna, residents get to lay their heads down at night in peace knowing that their desire to stay sober is honored and nothing more than their willingness to participate is required to have a home here. "
