Cuyahoga County residents need opportunities to earn more money and connections to careers

In 2019 The Center for Community Solutions and The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland (CEOGC) collected new information directly from low-income residents which indicated that many jobs are not sufficient to ensure that a family is above poverty. More than a quarter of low-income working people in Cuyahoga County said their job has no room for advancement and 1 in 6 also said that their current job won’t help them get ahead. ​

The bottom line: Cuyahoga County Residents need opportunities to earn more money and connections to careers, not just jobs.
