Old Stone Church Partnership – In celebration of its 200th year on Cleveland’s Public Square, the historic church has embarked upon an important mission to address housing insecurity in our community.


Old Stone Church, in partnership with Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities,  is co-sponsoring the Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities’ Matching Grant Program with a commitment of $250,000 to provide 200 homes (representing its 200 years of service to Greater Cleveland) to house vulnerable populations. Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities kicked off the program with a $1 million endowment and now looks to generate philanthropic resources from within the community to further the goal of the program, which is to raise $5 million dollars by the end of 2025 to put towards rehabilitating 200 homes in our community and work in tandem with our partners to provide housing opportunities to veterans with disabilities, individuals transitioning out of incarceration, victims of domestic violence or trafficking, young adults aging out of foster care, and other at-risk populations. 


We ask the community to donate to this ambitious and critically needed effort. Every dollar raised will go toward providing housing and needed resources to improve the lives of these vulnerable populations.

Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities’ Matching Grant Program helps eligible organizations renovate homes acquired from the Cuyahoga Land Bank. Stable and affordable housing is a crucial platform for independence and improved employment, health, and education and yields many opportunities and stronger outcomes for children, youth, and adults. Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities provides matching grants to eligible non-profit and faith-based organizations – those serving many of the social service needs in Cuyahoga County – in support of missions to provide housing opportunities for those most at-risk. See matching grant program guidelines HERE.

Capacity Building

capacity building

Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities works with many eligible non-profit and faith-based groups to assist them in renovating homes for at-risk or underserved populations. Renovating homes supplied by the Cuyahoga Land Bank can be challenging, especially for those organizations that have never managed a renovation or raised the needed funds and enlisted the necessary volunteers. For this reason, Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities works with organizations that have successfully completed a Cuyahoga Land Bank home.

Organizations that wish to become eligible for the Cuyahoga Land Bank Charities’ Matching Grant Program but lack experience are referred to our partner, Building Hope in the City, which will help an organization with their non-profit status, organizational documents, and “readiness” to do home renovations.
