The Cuyahoga Land Bank has been involved in nearly a dozen collaborations with social service organizations and non-profits in the region that offer affordable housing, community stabilization, and skilled training opportunities. Our mission is to reduce blight, increase property values, and improve quality of life for county residents through property acquisition, renovation and demolition. One of the ways we accomplish this is by working collaboratively with organizations throughout Cuyahoga County to actively advance their missions and find unique property uses that benefit our community’s most in-need citizens.

By donating property to local organizations and churches, we’ve been able to help others make a real impact in their communities in a variety of ways. These properties have been renovated by volunteers and utilized as affordable housing for single mothers, homeless veterans, recovery housing, and much more. This is just the beginning of our collaborative efforts, and so much more can be done when we work together!
