Protecting Our Future

Community Resources

Cuyahoga County has many programs and agencies that offer support to family and friends after the death of a child. Many of these groups also work to improve physical and mental health issues, help people with domestic violence concerns, and provide safety and health information to protect our babies, young children, and teens.

Cuyahoga County’s referral line for human service programs is the United Way of Greater Cleveland’s 2-1-1 hotline.


You can reach the 2-1-1 service by simply dialing 211 on your phone to speak to a live operator, or by visiting 2-1-1 on the web at the link below.
