Our Mission

Creating opportunities for families to introduce young children to volunteerism.

We are Caring

We are Child-Centered

We are Family Friendly

We value Connection

We value Civic Engagement

During these weeks when
families gather in thanks,
we encourage you to include
a service project
that reaches out to others.
This holiday season, Cubs & their families will make holiday-themed messages of hope, cheer & encouragement for isolated young adults who are lovingly supported by Community of Hope’s dedicated volunteer teams. Our messages will be included with a delivery of holiday gifts.
Community of Hope is a Cleveland nonprofit that creates long-lasting relationships for youth who have aged-out of foster care. Each young person gets a team of adult volunteers who meet with them weekly and help them navigate adulthood. These teams/communities often become second families and stay together for many years.
When youth age-out of foster care, they often are left completely alone. Through the work of long-term volunteers, Community of Hope creates permanent social supports for youth and their children. Community of Hope believes in helping youth reach their fullest potential by linking them to personal and professional networks to improve access and opportunity to better jobs, better housing, better educational opportunities, and more solid community connections. With over 592 volunteers and over 80 teams, Community of Hope serves around 140 young people a year.
Detailed instructions will arrive via email once you register.

Caring Mail: Holiday Wishes for Former Foster Youth

Join us as we thank veterans for their service!
Join fellow Cubs and their families to make messages of gratitude, cheer & kindness for local veterans of all military branches. Cleveland’s VA Hospital will disperse our Caring Cubs cards and messages to all medical units for veterans receiving in-person services throughout the year.
The VA Northeast Ohio Healthcare System provides America’s Veterans with world-class health care, educates the next generation of providers, and pushes the limits of advance medical knowledge through research and partnerships. Above all else it honors and serves Those Who Have Served by providing

health care services at 18 locations in northeast Ohio. On any given day, the VA Hospital sees over 200 veterans for a wide range of services.

Each family can register for one 1-hour shift. Choose from 10:00-11:00 or 11:30-12:30.

Masks are required for participants ages 24+ months, will be offered as needed.

Our Policy About COVID Safety
Given our organizational investment in citizenship and accessibility, Caring Cubs remains committed to creating a safe environment for all who wish to volunteer at our service projects. Out of consideration for vulnerable community members and those not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, Caring Cubs requests that all participants aged 24-months and up wear masks and maintain social distance at all in-person and drive-through service projects. Any participants who arrive without masks may be offered masks. If you, or anyone in your group, feels unwell we ask that you please not attend that day’s Caring Cubs service project.
Register for the project.
