Citizen Circles are groups of community members committed to helping offenders make the transition from “offender to citizen”. They create partnerships that promote positive social interactions and accountability to help offenders become productive citizens.
Offenders and their families develop relationships with community members and jointly develop a plan to help the offender re- integrate into society. An important part of this re- entry process is the communication to them that their debt has been paid and the community is willing to accept them as a restored citizen.
How do Citizen Circles work?
Offenders seek involvement of their own free will.
Circles focus on the future rather than the past.
Circles create an environment aimed at fostering acceptance and for using on the
individual’s personal strengths.
We need your involvement as an ordinary citizen to help make this happen. If you are interested in participating in a circle, please contact Sr. Madeline Muler at email@example.com or 216.408.0214.
Registration is now open for Hospice of the Western Reserve's 2016 Walk to Remember, sponsored by FirstMerit Bank. Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist Leon Bibb of WEWS-TV, Channel 5, is this year’s Master of Ceremonies.

March 17, 2016 marked yet another great St. Patrick Day on E. 185th along with the city of Cleveland.
Along with St. Patrick celebrations, there brought on a more serious matter of childhood cancers, hence the St. Baldrics event
Held this year again at Cebar's Euclid Tavern, St. Baldricks is the foundation that shaves peoples hair off to mimic kids going through chemotherapy treatment. This year marked a very personal and endearing moment at Cebar's when a patron, Mary Ann Borris, thinking that a goal of $500 was a little unattainable , stepped up and pledged that very amount to shave all of her hair off. This pledge was made in January of 2016. Two months later and a few week away from the event, Mary Ann, unfortunately, found out that she has cancer.
So with determination and a very strong sense of accomplishment, Cebar's Euclid Tavern Shave to Raise event took on a whole new animal. Starting at 1 pm and ending at 7 pm, online contributions started coming in at $237. Before 7 pm the event was well over the $500 mark and getting close to doubling the pledge. People from everywhere were donating online and in the bar. The luck of the irish was certainly with us that day!
In all 2 Barbers, Susan M. Brandt from Beachland Hair and Joe LaMarca from LaMarca Family Barber Shop, braved the shaves along with about 10 heads and lots of donations! Thanks to Cebar's Euclid Tavern for hosting Lisko Beauty and Barber Supply for the chair and supplies, and all the donation made by the patrons at Cebar's Euclid Tavern! See you next year!

At 9:30 there will be a live music show headlined by The Sadies from Toronto and Ethan Daniel Davidson from Detroit! The proceeds from this event will be used for spay/neuter costs, vet bills, shelter and food for the cat colonies that the trap-neuter-return group oversee.
The Waterloo Alley Cat Project grew out of a couple of friends sharing a concern over the overpopulation of homeless cats and kittens around Waterloo Road’s business district. The project has now grown into an 8 member volunteer organization that has spayed/neutered over 250 cats since 2009. They have been awarded 5 grants: including two from the ASPCA in Washington, D.C. They were also featured the U.S. Humane Society’s national publication in 2013 as an example of a successful grassroots community trap-neuter-return organization.
This is not an event just for cat lovers; this is about helping to build a stronger community from the heart.

Spring Session of Tri-Cís Women in Transition Program Now Open for Registration at Metro Campus in Cleveland
The Women in Transition program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) will launch a spring session at Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland on Jan. 19.
Starting high school can be an overwhelming experience for any teenager. Students will encounter many changes including, larger class sizes, bigger buildings, three minutes to go from on class to the next, and 8 different teachers just to name a few. In an effort to alleviate some of the anxiety, Memorial 8th graders spent Nov. 13th visiting several area high schools to get a feel for some of the options available to them next year. Students visited Jane Adams Business High School where the students were able to learn about the specialized education options that would place them firmly on the path to careers in Accounting, Business Management, Culinary Arts, and Hospitality and Tourism. The second stop to the day was over to John Hay where students learned about the innovative small school design where students can intern at Cleveland Clinic or earn over a year's worth of college credits while still in high school. The final stop of the tour was Cleveland School of the Arts where students learn to turn their artistic passion into a career. The students thoroughly enjoyed each of the visits and hopefully walked away with a better understanding of what to expect when they leave the Cardinal nest and begin to fly on their own.
Center for Advanced Mental Heath Practice Foundation and Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries are joining together to create a free urban garden called Siggy’s Village Community Garden and Free Urban Market. I am Mike Rogers, the master gardener at Siggy’s Village, and I would like to ask you a question: Have you ever heard of the term “urban gardening”? What comes to mind when you hear the words “urban gardening”? I think of using every day containers and structures to house plants. So this week I challenge you to look up urban gardening, in my opinion the most versatile form of gardening. There is no set format, and to me, this is why it’s so exciting; it sparks imagination and creativity.
“If you had told me 30 years ago, when I was beginning my career as a psychiatric clinical nurse specialist at the Cleveland Clinic, that some of the most valuable lessons I would one day use in my daily encounters would be learned from practicing a martial art,” says Kirste Carlson, “I wouldn’t have believed you. It turns out there were some precious life skills even a doctorate in nursing practice hadn’t taught me.”
Carlson, who moved to Euclid three years ago, says she was delighted to find such a helpful resource just a few blocks from her house, in the form of Lake Shore Aikido, which offers classes several times a week in beautifully renovated quarters at Shore Cultural Center. Besides keeping her physically fit, says Carlson, Aikido provides “a laboratory for learning about yourself, and practicing a creative way of being under pressure.”
