Many North Coast Community Homes (NCCH) residents come to us after living on the street or with barely enough belongings to fill a few trash bags.

One new resident entered his apartment provided by NCCH with a sense of awe. This was his first home other than the streets since he was 14 years old. He couldn’t believe he was about to be living in such a nice place.

Our Housing Services Manager, Janice Stahl, in memory of her infant daughter, Isabella, has developed Isabella’s Closet, a donation program to help our Summit County residents with their basic needs.

The following new and gently used items may be donated to North Coast Community Homes. The items will be distributed to residents who are in need. Or you can donate here.
