LAND studio developed out of a merger between ParkWorks, which had been cleaning public spaces, and Cleveland Public Art, which beautified those spaces. Now, operating together as LAND studio, the team helps community groups, government agencies, artists, and local businesses organize and raise funds to execute collaborative plans that shape Cleveland's public spaces in innovative ways. Projects supported by LAND studio include the Public Square redesign, which will make the historical downtown space a more attractive destination for families and workers, and ParkArts, which provides summer arts programs for thousands of children and their parents throughout Cleveland's neighborhood parks.

Through its Food Folks program—a comprehensive nutrition education series—Children's Hunger Alliance teaches children from low-income families about the importance of a nutritional breakfast, better fast-food options, and understanding nutrition labels. Kids get to enjoy healthy snacks in each lesson, and learn to cook their own healthy food. The series also includes a Family Night, where students get to flex their new skills by preparing a healthy meal for their families. On average, more than 85% of participants demonstrate improvement in their nutritional knowledge during the 12-week series, according to surveys taken before and after the program is completed.

The staff and partners of Emerald Development and Economic Network (EDEN), Inc. believe that all people need a home. As part of this mission, they maintain a collection of more than 90 properties, group homes, and affordable permanent-housing units across Cuyahoga County for more than 3,500 people with low incomes, a history of homelessness, and qualifying disabilities. In each property, residents maintain the freedom and independence necessary for them to be a part of the greater community, while still receiving access to support services within their building. EDEN property managers regularly work with partner agencies, such as Veteran’s Administration and AIDS Taskforce of Greater Cleveland and Mental Health Services (MHS). In time, tenants can take strength from their newfound stability to get a full-time job, reconnect with family, overcome addictions, or stay off the street.

SpitzerCares.org hopes to fund a million meals in 2012 through food pantries, shelters, kids’ cafés, and backpack programs. For every dollar it earns via community car washes, donations, and fundraising events, SpizerCares.org can provide four meals to northern Ohioans in need. Patrons can keep up with the organization’s progress online as a ticker shaped like an apple tallies the number of meals SpitzerCares.org has shelled out so far this year.
