Personal + Family Development


The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland is here for you! Our services are designed to empower low-income families in Cuyahoga County by eliminating barriers and assisting individuals to become self-sufficient. We believe that your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

CEOGC accepts walk-ins and referrals! We offer many services: tax preparation, Baby and Mommy Support (B.A.M.S), Emergency Assistance, Parenting workshops, Counseling, Life Skills, Anger Management workshops and Domestic Violence workshops for men.

These services are available for free for income-eligible Cuyahoga County residents.

We understand that many people need support with dealing with their feelings and emotions so we have Licensed Social Workers on staff who are trained to help you deal with your daily stress.
