Another Chance of Ohio (ACOO) is a faith-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving men, women and children throughout Cuyahoga County and the Greater Cleveland area.  It was established in 2002 to provide free items to families in need. As the program began to grow, homes that needed repair and rehabilitation were purchased or donated to ACOO. Those who live in the homes and utilize our services are inspired and empowered to give back to their community. 

Our mission is simple: To provide high quality housing and services for low-income people.

Our vision is to do this for:

        • families in crisis
        • families to escape from domestic violence
        • veterans struggling with homelessness and job loss
        • youth aging out of foster care


At ACOO, our services evolve based on the needs of the men, women and children that we serve. Our programs and services are as diverse as our clientele. Programs include: Furniture Distribution Program, Toy Give-Away Program, Referral Assistance, Family Empowerment Workshops, Adopt-a-Family Program, Show of Love Program, Kid-2-Kid Program, Heart-to-Heart Program, Youth Construction Training Program.
