Background

West Side Catholic Center located in Cleveland received grant funds to purchase items and equipment to support the Family Services program for children designed to help children and their parents surmount the emotional, social, behavioral and educational barriers of homelessness. Grounded in Faith, Hope, Love and Respect for those served, West Side Catholic Center assists all who come to them in need of food, clothing, shelter, advocacy and a path to self-sufficiency. This grant application was endorsed by McDonald’s Owner/Operators Angelo and Susie Stames, owners of McDonald’s restaurants in Cleveland.
