For cleveland.com’s A Greater Cleveland series on poverty, my colleagues and I have been following several families who are struggling to find decent and stable housing. If their stories have taught me one thing, it’s this: Stable housing is among the most significant barriers to climbing out of poverty.
The Legal Aid Society of Cleveland – a nonprofit law firm for the poor –understands this. That’s why it quickly decided to take over the CTO’s hotline to provide education and guidance about tenant rights.
