About Us: Associate Board


The Associate Board of the West Side Catholic Center is comprised of Cleveland’s emerging civic and business leaders who are committed to the ongoing success of the WSCC as a leader in homeless services.  The Associate Board's mission is to promote awareness of the WSCC in Cleveland, organize philanthropic initiatives, and provide volunteer service.  As ambassadors of the WSCC, they have the opportunity to participate in many different ways including fundraising, public relations, outreach, and recruiting new members.  Through the Associate Board we hope to cultivate, inspire, and empower a new generation of philanthropic leaders and supporters of the WSCC. 

The Associate Board meets monthly to report on progress and to discuss new initiatives.  Board meetings also provide a fun opportunity for networking and socializing with other members of the group.  Committees meet monthly throughout the year to plan and carry out each of their specific objectives.
