Eye for Change Youth and Family Services was conceived of by a group of concerned social service professionals who recognized that there were gaps in services for the most vulnerable Cleveland residents, people struggling with multiple challenges be it mental health issues, or a need for social resources – people in need of wrap around support.
EFCYFS founders proposed working more collaboratively with philanthropic organizations, government entities and a diverse array of community members to provide services in a community oriented and holistic setting.
The thing that makes us different is that we are smaller. We know our clients and our families, and many of our staff and our allies work in the communities that we serve. Unlike larger agencies, we are very connected to the communities we serve and are committed to maintaining that level of intimacy.
