At the heart of Cleveland is Slavic Village. Once a vibrant Czech and Polish community on Cleveland’s near east side, the historic neighborhood has been hit in recent years by a number of downturns. In the recession at the the end of the 21st Century’s first decade, Slavic Village became known as “center of the foreclosure crisis.” Too often, residents have seen their community and their personal wealth deteriorated.
But for the children of Slavic Village, there is hope. Jones Road Family Ministries is a beacon of support and enrichment for the youth of an ailing neighborhood. Learn more about our history and what makes us tick.
