Description:

Information & Referral, Clothing Distribution, and Computer Education are
important to core settlement house services that have origins with the founding of the organization. Information and Referral place the organization at the center of the community and empowers residents. The Information and Referral Specialist is
available to link families with resources, answer questions and advocate for community resources. Assistance to families includes filling out applications for basic human need services such as clothing, rental and utility assistance, shelter, and food banks. The East Cleveland, Mt. Pleasant and Garfield Heights facilities are Shoes and Clothes for Kids distribution centers. Families needing essentials have opportunities to receive these items quarterly. Murtis Taylor HSS also accepts and distributes donations of clothing from the public.


Computer Education is aimed at providing basic literacy in a fun and supportive
environment. The class is guided by a volunteer computer instructor that caters
to the individual needs of participants. The course imparts the knowledge and
ability to use computers and technology efficiently and comfortably. It covers
photo editing, social networking, emailing, and internet surfing.
