FutureHeights and Reaching Heights move to Coventry Village neighborhood
Two Heights nonprofits—FutureHeights, the community-building organization that publishes the Heights Observer, and Reaching Heights, the organization that supports public education in the Heights—are the newest tenants at the Coventry Building, 2843 Washington Blvd., the former Coventry Elementary School. The two organizations have both moved in to Suite 105, formerly occupied by the Open Office.
“Our strategic partnership with Reaching Heights enables us to share resources, reduce expenses and use more of the dollars invested in us to fulfill our mission of creating a more vibrant community,” said Clare Taft, president of the FutureHeights Board of Directors. “We have more space at the Coventry location than we did before, and are looking forward to working with Reaching Heights on some joint programming.”
John Hubbard, president of the Reaching Heights Board of Directors said, "Working out of a former school building with a number of like-minded neighbors is an ideal complement to the mission of Reaching Heights, reminding us that we focus on making public education a pillar within our community. We anticipate an exciting cross-pollination of ideas and opportunities with FutureHeights in particular, due to the many parallels in our goals."
The groups plan to make some renovations to the space over the next several months and will hold an open house later in the year. They join existing Coventry Building tenants Lake Erie Ink, Family Connections, Ensemble Theatre, Cleveland Heights High School Alumni Foundation, Urban Oak School and Coventry Children’s Center.
Both organizations will retain their current phone numbers and e-mail addresses. To reach FutureHeights, call 216-320-1423 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. To reach Reaching Heights, call 216-932-5110 or e-mail email@example.com.
