Harbor and Bridge Community Center
We often hear talk about serving people who are "in need." At Harbor and Bridge, we believe everyone needs something. You may need something like a meal or a refurbished bike. Or you may need something far less concrete like a place to feel connected to your community. Whatever your need, and whatever your creative vision for bettering our community, we would love to meet you.
Whoever you are and whatever your story, there is a place for you here.
What We Do
Serving Residents in Need and Connecting Neighbors
Trials For Hope
Trials for Hope is an independent 501(c)(3) providing food and basic necessities to individuals and families in the area. They work with churches and other community partners to gather and distribute these resources.
Trials for Hope is headquartered in the lower (basement) level of the Harbor and Bridge Community Center. You can learn more about their work here
Bike Donations and Repairs
Because affordable transportation is so important to community life, Harbor and Bridge hosts an ongoing bicycle donation and repair shop. Donors can offer used bikes, and residents in need can request a refurbished set of wheels.
Classes and Workshops
At Harbor and Bridge, we partner with local organizations to host classes, training events and workshops. Our building has space and seating for gatherings of any size, including classrooms and a former sanctuary space that seats up to 150.
The building has a historic feel with original wood and fixtures and provides a perfect backdrop for almost any activity. If you are looking for creative space, we would love to talk with you about your needs.
Who We Are
Our story is one of bringing new life into a timeless space. For many years, our building housed a United Methodist congregation serving the Hispanic community on Cleveland's Westside. As the community grew and changed, it became clear that our mission needed to grow and change, too.
Harbor and Bridge Community Center is still a United Methodist affiliated space. We are proud of our United Methodist roots, and we see that as a starting point for creating community partnerships across denominational lines and with neighbors of other faith traditions and beliefs. Today, we strive to provide needed services and resources to residents and desire to be a place where neighbors can connect with one another.
At Harbor and Bridge, when we say "open doors," we mean it.
