For over 50 years the May Dugan Center has provided essential human services to the greater Cleveland community. We are known for quickly adapting to the changing needs of our clients and our community. As we plan for our future, it’s become clear that we’ve reached capacity and have done so at a historical time when so many people are struggling to meet their basic needs.
With the demand for our trauma sensitive programs and services experiencing exponential growth, and our need to scale and modernize our operations, we’re launching a capital campaign to:
Expand our current programs and services to meet the community needs
Renovate our existing space to provide a safe, welcoming, and therapeutic environment for everyone, especially for people who have experienced trauma.
Upgrade our building systems for modern service delivery (e.g., ADA compliance) to remove all barriers to utilizing our building and surrounding space
The May Dugan Center is a welcoming, safe space for all people - and no one in need is ever turned away. Help ensure that’s always the case by supporting our capital campaign today.
People needing our services will be positively impacted by this campaign. We will have the physical capacity to serve more families, children, aging adults and people in need than we can now. The renovated and upgraded offices and common spaces will provide the safe, welcoming and therapeutic environment that everyone deserves. Through streamlined and energy efficient design, we will see cost savings in building operation, and permit us to invest in our programming.
To provide an increase in services to our neighbors and the Cleveland Community!
To meet this goal, we need to raise $5.6 Million dollars that will allow us to renovate, replace and upgrade the building and its major systems. The result will be a facility that will enhance programming to meet the multitude of needs in the communities we serve. With your support we will build on our strong track record of excellence and ensure this long-standing community asset remains for the next 50 years.
