The mission of the May Dugan Center is “to help people enrich and advance their lives and communities.”
Welcome to the May Dugan Center
Exciting things are happening at the May Dugan Center! This past October, we received accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International. This accreditation will enable the May Dugan Center to bill for our eligible units of service, the first time in the 44 year history of the agency. This would not have been possible without the support from The Cleveland Foundation.
Furthermore, the Center increased its program delivery by 10% over last year in services provided as over 10,000 units of service were delivered to thousands of clients. In all, nearly 30.000 visits were made to the May Dugan Center building. This includes clients who visit our tenants-the Center for Children & Families, Cuyahoga County Adult Probation Offices, Council for Economic Opportunities for Greater Cleveland (HEAP), and other partnering agencies. We have learned during this process that the concept of a “Multi Service Center.”which offers clients access to multiple services at one location,is both efficient and beneficial to individuals seeking services.
In 2014 the May Dugan Center will celebrate 45 years of service to the Near West Side and surrounding communities Our mission,”to help people enrich and advance their lives and communities” is our #1 priority. We are proud of our history and, as the needs of our communities continue to grow, we always strive to provide the best services possible.Despite cuts to social service programs by the government,a stagnant economic recovery, and hardened competition for philanthropic funds, these hardships have not deterred us from upholding the tradition and legacy of our namesake! The center continues to expand existing programs and develop new services in order to ensure the needs of our clients and communities are met! Support from local foundations, individual donors, corporations, governmental agencies and our volunteers will continue to make a positive impact for thousands of individuals in the Near West Side.
We appreciate your support. Thank you
