This summer, Joseph’s Home is fortunate to host another John Carroll University student through the Advocacy, Solidarity, and Social Change Internships program provided by the John Carroll University Center for Service and Social Action.

While at Joseph’s Home, residents are encouraged to engage in programs that aim to help them achieve their health and wellness goals and/or to build skills and confidence in preparation for living in their own housing. One such program is the Healthy Eating and Gardening Program.

It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the unexpected passing of Board of Directors member and friend, Dr. Lloyd Cook. Dr. Cook passed away on Monday, April 19 after a brief illness. Joseph’s Home extends our deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Dr. Cook.
Joseph’s Home receives countless calls from hospital social workers asking for help for women with serious medical issues. Cleveland’s traditional shelters are not equipped to help women recover from surgery or other acute health conditions. Instead, when women experience a medical issue, they are rushed to emergency departments. Once they are treated and discharged back to a traditional shelter or the streets, the cycle starts all over again. Sadly, due to a lack of space, Joseph’s Home is forced to turn away these referrals just when medically-vulnerable women need us the most. The time is now to end this tragic cycle for women.
