This project is one of four sites being developed as part of The Salvation Army’s Cleveland Plan. The CNMIF II NMTC investment supports all four sites.
The West Park Corps is the fastest growing Corps center in Northeast Ohio. The Corps has maximized it space available and there is simply not enough space to properly serve all the people in the local neighborhoods who need help. The planned renovations of the existing building and addition of 14,400 square feet will nearly double the size of the current facility without increasing operating costs. The Army will increase the space for its food pantry, including a better designed space for clients and larger food storage areas. By expanding the space for food storage, The Salvation Army can reduce its food delivery costs and enhance its inventory to best meet client needs. The Army also plans to renovate the kitchen area to meet the demand for hot meal delivery and on-site meals, expand the space for after-school education programs from the basement to a new second floor, and increase the space for its music and arts programs. The West Park Corps has reached maximum capacity for its church services, so the Army will also expand and redesign its chapel.
