Homeless Find Homes Thanks to Cleveland’s Metanoia Project

A John Carroll University senior in Cleveland is using the city’s surplus of inexpensive housing and a $40,000 grant to house the homeless.

Brian Mauk began the Metanoia Project (from a Greek term for a drastic change in one’s life) last year to rehab foreclosed and abandoned homes for the area’s homeless.

Homeless people are recruited from the streets of Cleveland to take part in the project. Those who are matched with a home are expected to help out by working on other rehab projects.
