GARDEN VALLEY NEIGHBORHOOD HOUSE
The residents of Cleveland’s Garden Valley Neighborhood are some of the most socially and economically segregated in the city. Whether providing food to a grandmother who is raising her grandchildren, coaxing seniors to exercise weekly and reduce salt intake, offering free training in construction skills to help adults become more self reliant, or tutoring elementary school children to help guarantee academic success, Garden Valley Neighborhood House is meeting the needs of a community that many have associated only with violence and poverty.
Malachi House, created out of a Christian sense of ministry, serves persons who are terminally ill, without regard to gender, race, religion or national origin and without cost to the resident or family.

Their trained staff and volunteers provide spiritual, emotional and physical support with the assistance of a hospice team.
