About CCS

Home / About CCS

The Center for Community Solutions is a nonpartisan think tank focused on solutions to health, social and economic issues. Community Solutions’ efforts are critical to the work and effectiveness of direct service organizations in Northeast Ohio.

These organizations use our data to identify changes in community demographics that will impact their services and identify the gaps and overlaps within these services. They use our analysis to better understand public policies that affect their work and develop advocacy agendas accordingly. They use our timely and affordable training programs to increase their knowledge in order to better serve their constituents. They use the networks and coalitions we offer to build a strong voice on behalf of the most vulnerable citizens in our community.

In addition to direct service organizations, funders, as well as policy makers, rely on our data and analysis to inform their decision-making, which can potentially impact all Ohioans.
