• Profile

    Malachi Center is a community and family resource center serving the Near West Side of Cleveland since 1985. The Center strives to empower individuals to overcome the challenges they face through educational support, social programs, and direct service.

    We assist homeless men and women living on the Near West Side through our Shower Program which provides free showers, toiletry supplies, and clothing. We also operate various Youth Programs for youth K-8 that implements tutoring, homework assistance, literacy development and career exploration. We also offer many other programs, services and referrals for adults and families that educate and encourage personal development.

    We are located within sight of the intersection of West 25th St. and Detroit Avenue, behind St. Malachi Church. The services the Center offers are made possible by the generosity of loyal donors, and the hard work of many volunteers.
