Collinwood Neighborhood Ministries Receives 2 Grants

During the past several months the staff of The Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries (CNCM) has become increasingly aware of the needs of the recently incarcerated in our area. Therefore, CNCM in collaboration with WallsInside Out, Hands2Hands Inc. and Case Western Reserve University, plans to serve this population. The Sisters of the Humility of Mary have generously agreed to help fund this project in the amount of $10,000. This grant will provide CNCM with the necessary resources to help returning citizens acquire a sense of self-worth, learn coping skills and gain access to social services.

Neighborhood Connections has awarded a $2,000 grant to Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries for their Drop-in for Peace program. This grant will enable them to offer improvisational drama workshops for teens, drumming for peace classes for children and seniors, neighborhood leadership training and a staffed computer drop-in center.
