The Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland is pleased to share an update since the painful decision to dissolve was made by the Board of Trustees on April 5, 2017:
We need your help in a variety of ways to close up our offices in Beachwood and to get information, data and supplies to organizations filling the void by our closing.
Through May 31, we need help with the following tasks:
Removing non-essential items from office
Removing plaques and wall hangings
Organizing office items to sell, give away, etc.
Delivering materials, files, etc. to other organizations
We cannot begin to thank you enough for your consideration to volunteer with us. The more help we get ensures a seamless transition for organizations such as the Camp Ho Mita Koda Foundation, Evi-Base Solutions and Project H.O.P.E. of Cleveland.
A community programs meeting was held at the Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland on April 18, 2017. A broad representation of community organizations were present which led to engaging discussion about the work we do. We are pleased to share that we are currently working with the following organizations to fulfill the void we will leave in the community:
Community Based Programming, Education & Support
Project Hope of Cleveland
Insulin Assistance in Cleveland
United Way of Greater Cleveland
Insulin Assistance in Northeast Ohio
A packed house of over 150 met in the Helmsley Pavillion on April 24, 2017 to discuss the future of Camp Ho Mita Koda. Lively discussion, along with a call to action were the highlights of the night. We are pleased to share that an organization, CHMK Foundation, is planning to operate camp as soon as this summer and beyond. More information about CHMK Foundation can be found below:
