Bienvenidos a Cleveland
Support for Puerto Rican families relocating to Cleveland, Ohio as a result of hurricanes Irma and Maria. / Apoyo para las familias puertorriqueñas que se mudan a Cleveland, Ohio como resultado de los huracanes Irma o Maria.
Bienvenidos a Cleveland is a collaborative project that supports families relocating to Cleveland, Ohio from Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria. The project was initiated through the efforts of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), Esperanza Inc., the Spanish American Committee and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD).
Since late September 2017, hundreds of families have arrived in Cleveland—many of them seeking support from community-based organizations such as the Spanish American Committee, Cleveland’s oldest and largest Hispanic social service agency. The biggest challenge has been housing, as many of the families have little to no income. Other needs include emergency funding, employment assistance, transportation, medical assistance, behavioral services, child care, senior care, food, clothing, diapers and household items. A year later, the work of Bienvenidos remains critical to provide families with much needed support.
