  • Mission:
  • Cogswell Hall is a permanent solution to homelessness that offers quality low-income housing with social services, builds community, and advocates for disabled and economically disadvantaged individuals.

  • Overview:
  • Cogswell Hall is a unique living environment where disabled and economically disadvantaged adults find a sense of family and community and the opportunity to work with the Supportive Services staff to restore a sense of security and well-being while averting crises.

    This resident-friendly facility is home to 41 men and women who enjoy meals together in the dining room, relax in the family room, and participate in programs and activities such as budgeting, health education, book club, cooking, art therapy and bingo.

    Cogswell Hall offers quality, low-income housing in a fully-accessible historic building in Cleveland’s Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood. Residents pay rent and, by signing a lease, have the rights and responsibilities of any renter. Residents can make Cogswell Hall their home on a short term basis or permanently.

    Suites at Cogswell Hall are furnished, including a microwave/refrigerator, and have a private bath.

    Residents have full access to the attractive, spacious common areas, such as the living room, parlor and back yard picnic area. The building includes a community room, laundry facilities, an exercise area, a dining hall and a computer/ resource center.

    On-site Supportive Services staff members work in collaboration with community based support systems to ensure that residents receive the necessary services to remain stable in housing and improve their lives. This collaboration helps eliminate unnecessary and costly duplication of community services.

    Residents are offered the opportunity to:
    • Develop an individualized Services Plan that meets their immediate needs and helps them set and attain short and long term goals.
    • Participate in health and wellness programs
    • Develop Life Skills such as budgeting, banking and managing a household.
    • Explore employment options and develop job readiness skills

    Cogswell Hall builds community through activities which value the voice of residents, such as:
    • Resident Circle, a monthly resident meeting, is a forum that encourages and empowers individuals to set standards for living together and resolve issues coming from sharing common space.
    • Community Meal is a monthly opportunity for all residents to join together and celebrate birthdays and other important occasions.

    Activities, some Informal and others regularly scheduled, bring residents together and reduce the isolation and marginalization of individuals.

    By way of the work we do and the example we set, Cogswell Hall educates the public, our residents, and local, state and federal policy makers regarding the housing and services needs for extremely low income individuals, and those struggling with homelessness, mental illness, developmental disabilities, substance abuse and physical limitations.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1878 by the Women's Christian Temperance Union, the organization helped women leaving the Cleveland Workhouse become useful citizens. By 1900 the focus moved from reformatory work to prevention, housing and educating girls 10 to 18 years of age. In 1952, the organization changed its name to Cogswell Hall in honor of its founder, Mrs. Helen Cogswell, and from then until 1969 housed young women (18 to 35). In 1970 Cogswell Hall shifted population to women over 60 and by 1999 was home for any aged adult woman. In 2009 after a renovation and expansion it became a residence for low income single adults, struggling with mental illness, developmental delays, substance abuse and the effects of homelessness and domestic violence.
