SRCDC was established in 2008 as a 501c3 community development corporation in the City of Cleveland Heights. Our mission has always been to develop programs within our community that will help low and moderate-income families in blighted areas.
The Good Neighbor Project is a newly formed branch of Start Right Community Development Corporation founded in 2008. The main function of the Good Neighbor Project is to fully rehabilitate vacant and blighted homes located in Cleveland Heights. Start Right CDC has successfully rehabilitated 3 homes in the Caledonia Neighborhood dating back to 2012. This project will expand our housing activities to directly impact low-moderate income (LMI) residents and, potentially LMI tenants. Our current focus is on the Caledonia Park Opportunity Zone.
Start Right Community Development Corporation’s mission is to contribute to the overall quality of life in our community. One of our specific projects for the last 8 years has been providing a Hunger Center for our community. Our last full year was 2019 in which we served 2,303 people; 629 of them were children, 971 of them were adults and 703 of them were seniors. Our doors are open to anyone in need, and most of our clients come from the disadvantaged populations in 44112, 44121, 44118 zip codes.. We work to ensure that the quality of service and level of inventory will continue to be first-class and allow us to serve each family equally.
