The Cleveland area is facing the difficult problem of not having enough safe, affordable housing available for low-income residents.  In light of this, eight diverse Christian and Jewish congregations are joining together to welcome Rev. Derrick Harkins, Director of HUD’s new Office of Faith-based & Neighborhood Partnerships, and Michiel Wackers, Director of Cleveland’s Department of Community Development, to speak about the housing shortage and what plans HUD and Cleveland have to increase safe, affordable housing in the Cleveland area for low-income residents.  Find out what all of us can do to help with this effort and how we can directly address the housing needs in our communities. We look forward to having many members of the community join us for this important program.    

Free & Open to the Community
