The Homeless Stand Down

 February 13, 2021

The Homeless Stand Down unites Northeast Ohio community members and businesses to give the gift of respite for people experiencing homelessness. Due to COVID-19, we are replacing the large, in-person event with Cleveland Cares Packages which will contain a variety of items including essentials, clothing, nonperishable food, and more. We plan to pack more than 1,500 care packages that will be distributed to our community partners at local shelters and nonprofit agencies.
