Project Hope was founded to address those in need within our immediate community. Residents can call (216) 739-3702 to request assistance. All information regarding participants is strictly confidential. Eligibility for these programs is dependent upon proper documentation of residency.

Project Hope Offers:
  • Winter coats, gloves and hats for children;

These services are provided through generous support from the Women’s and Men’s Service Clubs, Village Employees, and individuals and businesses in the community.
