HOW TO USE THE NEIGHBORHOOD ORGANIZATION DIRECTORY [Main Page]
[Questions / Comments ]

The information contained in the Neighborhood Organization Directory was derived from a survey mailed to all organizations known to the Center for Neighborhood Development involved in neighborhood development activities. The five sections provide basic information on the organizations and their activities. A new feature is the phone/fax list of all organizations prior to Section A. Organization entries also include email addresses.

Section A - Neighborhood Based Organizations

This section lists the neighborhood-based organizations alphabetically. The survey requested the address and phone number of each organization as well as the director and the president or chairperson of the board. Most organizations also listed their Geographic Area of Activity, Activities Involved In and Staff. The section on activities was derived from a checklist provided in the survey and is cross-referenced in Section C-Activities of Organizations. The section on Staff lists the staff titles and the names of staff members.

    Section C - Activities of Neighborhood Organizations

    This section was derived from the checklist of activities listed in the survey. Each activity is followed by the neighborhood-based organizations involved.

The main categories are Neighborhood Advocacy, Housing Development and Rehabilitation, Weatherization Activities, Commercial Development Activities and Industrial Development Activities and other activities which list Youth Programs, Child Care, Elderly Programs, Financial Literacy Education Program, Community Computer Center and Social Services for Families.

    Section E - Organizations by Political Boundaries

    This section lists neighborhood-based organizations by City of Cleveland wards, by Ohio House districts, by Ohio Senate districts, and by U.S. Congressional districts. Along with each government district is the name of that district's representative. There are maps of each of the political districts. This section by no means defines the political activity area of each organization. This section also includes information on Departments of the City of Cleveland and the director of each department. Many organizations are active in areas larger than their political districts but are listed in certain districts because of the address of their headquarters.
