We were very excited to have been one of four collaboratives selected as a recipient of the Cuyahoga County Senior Center Innovation Grant. CPA will partner with Cleveland Heights, Maple Heights and Solon on this planning grant, which will seek to enhance the safety and independence of older adults through minor home modifications, simple maintenance tasks and repairs, and assistance with coordination of required work. The project will include an independent-living risk evaluation and information and referral service for home owners in the collaborating cities. Volunteers will be sought from corporate, non-profit, civic, school and faith-based organizations.
Congratulations to CARE and good luck in the next phase of planning this much-needed program!
