Garfield Heights, OH (PRWEB) June 7, 2010
Word of Righteousness Family Life Center, Inc. (http://www.worflc.org), a faith-based non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality support services to enrich the lives of families throughout Northeast Ohio, was selected by Cleveland Restoration Group, LLC to receive the generous donation of a violation-free home.
Word of Righteousness Family Life Center (WORFLC) and Cleveland Restoration Group, LLC, together with collaborative partners throughout the community, will prepare the home to provide emergency housing for families in transition. As a result of this joint effort, children and parents at risk of homelessness can be compassionately assisted with supportive services from within their community. Upon stabilizing the families with temporary housing, WORFLC staff will implement the wrap-around process with interested families to empower them and promote self-sufficiency.
“On countless occasions we have worked with families in an attempt to obtain financial assistance through various emergency housing programs offered by our community partners. However, when clients are unable to meet the eligibility requirements, they may need to relocate to a shelter, though it can be difficult to make such an arrangement for families, especially during weekends or holidays. Ultimately, when all other resources are unavailable, a family might be placed in a hotel to accommodate the need for shelter. The receipt of this generous donation affords our organization with a valuable alternative to meet the growing need for emergency housing in support of the families we serve,” stated Dr. Alicia M. Lytle, President and Chief Executive Officer of WORFLC.
Cleveland Restoration Group (http://www.restoringcleveland.com) is a consortium of investors, agents, buyers, developers, and other real estate professionals involved in Cleveland's real estate investment market that work with individuals to help choose sound real estate investment properties and increase personal wealth. Partners Vadim Kleyner and Elena Abramovich, demonstrated tremendous generosity in spreading their company’s wealth to benefit those that are less fortunate. “It is truly an honor to be entrusted with such an asset to carry out our charitable work, especially where a pre-existing relationship with the donors and their company was not present,” commented Pastor Charles J. Lytle, Chairman of the Board of WORFLC.
WORFLC serves as the lead agency of the Southeast Area Collaborative, which includes Garfield Heights, Maple Heights, Valley View, Walton Hills and Oakwood Village. Their charitable work has served these communities and others including the southeast part of Cleveland, Bedford, Warrensville Heights and Independence. Their service highlights include:
