Did You Know?

Since the mid-1980’s North Coast Community Homes has developed more than 230 homes in Northeast Ohio

We have about 1,000 residents with many different intellectual and physical disabilities – their safety, dignity, and well being is our number one priority

The income of virtually all our residents is well below the poverty level – they could not afford to live elsewhere

We have homes in six different NE Ohio counties, and more than 60 individual communities

Every home has a fire suppression system above the stove – we spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to protect our residents’ lives

More than half our homes are equipped with live saving whole house fire sprinkler systems, at a cost of up to $35,000 per home

We will need to spend millions more additional dollars to put whole house fire sprinkling systems in the rest of our homes, starting with those where our residents with mobility problems are most at risk

Our residents depend on the generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations to ensure they can stay as long as they want to live there

One of our formerly homeless residents lived in the woods for more than 10 years before North Coast Community Homes took him in and gave him a home.  Today he is thriving with NCCH

Since moving into a North Coast Community Home, one resident who has advanced Cerebral Palsy has found the will and inspiration to try everything from swimming to snow skiing

One of our residents has acted as a greeter, from her wheelchair, for the Cleveland Indians at virtually every home game for 20 years

Our largest individual donor, who was 93 years old and whose son volunteered to act as a greeter for us, contributed more than $300,000 plus her home to North Coast Community Homes

Two of our residents, brothers with disabilities, learned to overcome their visual impairments, lost a total of more than 300 pounds, regained their health, and now have an apartment of their own
