Discovering Home Project
Over the years, International Services Center has resettled over 13,000 refugees into various neighborhoods of Greater Cleveland. Those neighborhoods are enriched by new populations and the diversity they bring with them. Refugees are earnest, hardworking, and motivated to succeed when given opportunities they did not receive in their home country.
ISC and the Cuyahoga County Land Reutilization Corporation (CCLRC) have collaborated to implement an innovative program called “Discovering Home”. The program makes it possible for ISC to acquire housing through CCLRC’s inventory of foreclosed, abandoned and vacant properties. Housing is a critical component of integration in American society and as a result refugees will learn firsthand the obligations of tenants and future homeownership. Discovering Home aims to give back to the community through a positive economic impact and investment in human capital.
