Background

Cleveland Christian Home was awarded grant funds to purchase equipment and items to support their residential treatment program. Founded in 1900 as an orphanage, today’s Cleveland Christian Home is a non-profit organization specializing in providing treatment for difficult and at-risk child and youth populations, including youth requiring 24-hour supervision and those involved with the juvenile justice system. CCH is a critical organization to Cuyahoga County’s system of community mental health care. This grant application was endorsed by McDonald’s Owner/Operator Robert J. Jursich, Jr., owner of several McDonald’s restaurants in the Cleveland area.
