Conversation Over Pizza
In 2015, the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority launched a new initiative, Conversation Over Pizza (C.O.P), to provide a positive platform for residents to engage in productive dialogue regarding community matters. The main goal of this resident-driven approach, which includes youth, adults, and seniors, is to address the societal challenges and issues faced by all residents. These ongoing focus groups discuss and develop viable solutions for reducing crime, violence, and other community challenges. By raising awareness, listening to the community and working together, C.O.P. will serve as a catalyst for building stronger community relationships and healthier neighborhoods.
