Heights Family to Family Collaborative

Helping families when life doesn’t go as planned…

We know that a community can only thrive if the families who live there are strong, supported and safe. Established in 2007, the Collaborative is a group of agencies, organizations and concerned individuals working together to make sure a network of services and support are available and accessible to children and families in our community.

We assist families in need by:

  • Assisting in the identification of community issues and needs as they relate to youth/families
  • Advocating for youth/family/community
  • Consulting and supporting to strengthen and expand community networking/partnerships

Additional services we provide include:

  • Emergency food (eligibility requirement)
  • Foster/Adoptive Parent and Relative Caregiver Support Group
  • Foster Care Recruitment
  • Ohio Benefit Bank (call to schedule appointment)
  • Utility assistance (eligibility requirements)
  • Mental health/counseling linkage
  • Parental support
  • Job training and education
  • Transportation, child care and/or respite help
  • Landlord/tenant issues
  • Wraparound Services

The Collaborative has ongoing partnerships with a network of organizations, schools, libraries and government and municipal entities and assists families that reside in the following communities: Beachwood, Cleveland Heights, Hunting Valley, Moreland Hills, Orange, Pepper Pike, Shaker Heights, the University Circle area, University Heights and Woodmere Village.

There are several ways to connect to our program. Referrals can be made by community residents/families, schools, congregations, the court systems and other collaborative partners. Call 216.320.9520 to learn more today.
