Social service agencies are moving into eight more Cleveland schools
(8.28.14) Eight more Cleveland schools have tapped social service agencies to assist them with organizing tutoring, attendance drives, parent engagement and other services for students and families.
The eight schools are the second wave of “wraparound” schools sponsored by the United Way of Greater Cleveland and the Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) to have an agency partnering with the school. In all, 25 schools are now participating in this effort.
The United Way has budgeted $2.5 million for the program this year, which represents about $100,000 for each of the 25 schools. The district contributes $700,000 to the project and $200,000 comes from the United Way’s general budget.
The remaining $1.6 million comes from grants and donations from foundations and companies including Saint Luke’s Foundation, the Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation, the Thomas White Foundation, the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland, the Cleveland Browns Foundation, Key Bank, Third Federal Bank and ParkOhio.
