CMHA Community Connections

Your Columbus Urban League is one of the first not-for-profit agencies to provide site-based supportive services. This initiative, in alignment with our partners from the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA), aims to improve the health of groups who have historically been marginalized, excluded, or otherwise placed at a social disadvantage–improving not only health care, but also the social determinants of health that affect the different communities at large.

We aim to help CMHA residents climb out of poverty and/or reduce their reliance on government assistance. This effort aligns with CUL’s commitment to improve outcomes by increasing economic stability, education, access to quality healthcare, safe housing, food insecurity.

Services offered include connection to workforce development, housing stability, food security, entrepreneurship, youth development, economic mobility, and social services. With thorough wrap-around services, CUL suite of financial services offers clients a hand up, no matter where they fall along the economic scale.

Participants must be a CMHA resident and/or a Section 8 Voucher Holder.
