Get Involved

Since it’s founding in 1985, Malachi Center has worked to improve the lives of youth, families and the homeless living on the Near West Side of Cleveland.

With your support Malachi Center can:

  • Provide low income families with a safe, positive, and enriching environment for their children during the after school and summer hours. During the pandemic we have expanded services to include school day learning pods and will continue to do so as long as school remains remote or hybrid.
  • Provide opportunities for children in grades K-8 to build the skills and resiliency that will allow them to succeed in school and beyond.
  • Help parents to navigate life challenges and access the resources that will enable them to advocate for and support their children’s learning and development.
  • Increase wellness and dignity for homeless men and women by providing showers, hygiene supplies, basic clothing items, and clothes washing services.
  • Provide navigation and case management services so those in need access the tools, skills, and community connections needed to increase stability.
