CEOGC continues to flourish as the City of Cleveland is being positively impacted by its community programs.

Last month Dr. Jacklyn Chisholm, president and CEO of CEOGC, received notice that the organization was awarded the $85,000 Fiscal Year 2019 Provisional Funding Grant from United Way of Greater Cleveland. The grant is specifically for the Kindergarten Readiness program and is currently for one year only, with the possibility of two dependent upon the program’s performance.

CEOGC plans to use the funding to prepare children for Kindergarten. The transition will be made easier as kids become acclimated with school through reading, field-trips to other schools and other activities.

The funding is under the umbrella of United Way’s Collective Impact Model, which focuses on basic needs, education, financial stability and health. United Way and CEOGC have been working alongside each other to promote change, growth and transformation in the community.

United Way of Greater Cleveland is an independent nonprofit organization that provides support to 115 local programs that bring services such as health, financial stability, education and general well-being to needful communities.
