With support from the Cleveland Foundation, The David and Jacquie Clark Family Fund, Humble Heart Gentle Soul Foundation, and Peg’s Foundation, NCCH has launched the Boundless Journeys program.
Boundless Journeys will provide expanded services previously provided in Akron/Summit County through the Isabella’s Closet program, established by Janice Stahl, NCCH Akron Housing Manager, and dedicated volunteers. The Boundless Journeys program accepts donations of new/gently used basic household items and furniture to help NCCH residents to establish a safe and comfortable home. The Boundless Journeys program has sites in the Akron and Cleveland areas. Through the program, NCCH residents will access household items and services that supplement their basic living needs and offer activities geared toward improved quality of life.
Caitlin Zagar, NCCH Residential Services Program Coordinator, will oversee the Boundless Journeys program for NCCH residents. “Serving the housing needs of individuals with disabilities is at the core of the North Coast Community Homes mission. However, the physical house is only a part of what makes a house a home,” stated Zagar.
NCCH recognizes that limited income causes financial strain and impacts access to household items to establish a home or replace damaged, unsafe furnishings. Therefore, Zagar offered, “Boundless Journeys will have specific household items, including furniture and small appliances, available for residents to help ensure their home is safe and comfortable.”
