From Crain’s Cleveland Business:

"Cuyahoga Community College is working to bring its services into more locations across Northeast Ohio.

The college aims to bring more education and job-training resources to neighborhoods in poverty, a news release stated. Tri-C will be working with Esperanza Inc. and Olivet Housing and Community Development Corp. to open what it's calling Tri-C Access Centers.

Proposed services for the sites include "college and career readiness workshops, English as a Second Language courses and the college's Women in Transition program," the release stated. Other programs, like those to train individuals in fields such as advanced manufacturing and information technology, could also be options.

The release said some programs are already being offered at the centers and others will grow over time. Many programs will be available at no cost.

The Esperanza site will be at its offices at 3104 W. 25th St. in Cleveland. The site for Olivet Housing and Community Development, which is part of Olivet Institutional Baptist Church, will be at the University Hospitals Otis Moss Jr. Health Center at 8819 Quincy Ave. in Cleveland. The Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority will also serve as a partner for the Olivet Housing and Community Development site."
