Euclid-Hillcrest COLLAB Partners with Shoes and Clothes 4 Kids
FAMILIES & COMMUNITY…IT’S WHAT WE’RE ABOUT!
The Euclid/ Hillcrest Family to Family Collaborative (the COLLAB) is a unique program here at the Euclid Family YMCA. The COLLAB supports families in realizing the vast amount of resources and services in their own community. The COLLAB’s staff persistently serves as a liaison and advocates on behalf of families while engaging with DCFS, neighborhood organizations and agencies, schools, courts and other service providers.
In addition to the variety of services and supports the Collaborative offers, throughout the year the COLLAB partners with Shoes and Clothes for Kids providing new clothing and school shoes for uniforms at no charge. Distribution takes place five times a year. The next distribution is scheduled for June 9th from 10a-2p. Registration for an appointment for the distribution is now open.
The Euclid/ Hillcrest COLLAB currently supports families in the Euclid, Euclid-Green, Richmond Heights, Lyndhurst, South Euclid, Highland Heights, Mayfield Heights, Mayfield Village, and Gates Mills areas.
Other services the COLLAB assist in providing, if not aiding referring families to are:
Prevention and Wraparound Services

REFERRALS FROM ALL SOURCES ARE WELCOMED!
