As a former Americorp VISTA with CTO and currently serving as a Board Member, I have seen first hand what a Great organization CTO is. It's mission, goals, and acheivements are a great asset to the City of Cleveland and surrounding areas. The Cleveland Tenants Organization works on behalf of a group of people that are normally forgotten about, landlords and tenants. I for one never knew a organization even existed that takes the time to explain what your rights are as a tenant or a landlord. I took great solice in knowing that I was providing a service to people that they couldn't receive anywhere else or just didn't know how.

I believe in CTO and I greatly appreciate what they stand for and the excellent work they do for the community and I'm honored to play a small role in what they do because it's the staff that really makes the wheels spin in that office. They work almost endlessly to ensure that the residents who call receives the information that they need.

If I could say one thing that may improve CTO, just more funding so they can reach more people.

Thank you

CTO is a uniquely effective non-profit organization. True to it's mission for over 35 years, the organization has continued to evolve to serve, while providing key education and outreach, advocacy, and empowerment for low-income tenants. In 2009, CTO was the recipient of the Anisfield-Wolf Memorial Award, largely considered the highest honor available to a Greater Cleveland non-profit organization, for it's innovative approach and efforts to assist renters caught in the web of the foreclosure crisis facing the region.
