We are excited to see the final touches being put on the Greater Cleveland Fisher House apartments. The final phase of the $3 million project has wrapped in preparation of a formal dedication and ribbon cutting in June.
The Fisher House Foundation built two Fisher House complexes with 16 suites each that will accommodate up to 50 family members of veteran or active duty military personnel receiving treatment at the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center and other local hospitals while their loved ones are being treated. Located on East 105thStreet and Lee Avenue, the building site was once a series of vacant properties. The Cuyahoga Land Bank was instrumental in assembling the 2.5 acres of land to make the project a reality.
“This project was built on community partnerships,” says Gus Frangos, President and General Counsel for the Cuyahoga Land Bank. “We were privileged to work with the Fisher House Foundation, VA, City of Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Famicos Foundation and so many others to make this incredible project a reality. Thanks to Jack Schron, a long-time Fisher House supporter and early driving force for the Cleveland Fisher House project, for bringing the Cuyahoga Land Bank in to help assemble the land for this project.”
