The mission of the May Dugan Center is to help people enrich and advance their lives and communities.

The Near West Side Multi-Service Corporation was incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) on July 30, 1969. In 1974, with support from the City of Cleveland’s Department of Development, the current facility was designed and constructed at 4115 Bridge Avenue in Cleveland’s Ohio City neighborhood. The facility was named the May Dugan Multi Service Center to honor the late May Dugan, a long-time resident of the neighborhood who had been a one-person advocate and counselor for her neighbors in need. 

Today, the May Dugan Center is a lifeline for 6,500 individuals and families who need effective and meaningful programs that will improve their lives and their communities. During the height of COVID-19 in 2020 we provided 6,834 families with food, the largest amount served in agency history. As the pandemic continues to affect our community, May Dugan Center continues to be a lifeline serving over 500,000 meals already in 2021!

We greatly appreciate generous financial support from many Cleveland area individuals and companies, as well as grants from private Foundations, funding from government entities, and in-kind donation. Our programs and services are also made possible through donations of food, clothing, furniture, and household items, and by the many volunteers who donate their time and expertise. These avenues of support are vital to our efforts to provide programs and services that positively affect the lives of many Greater Cleveland area residents.

WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY to take part in the Rock Family of Companies Community Challenge this year! From August 2nd to 27th in a month of unprecedented giving, we will be working hard to help fund our six core programs  and support the amazing work of our organization through the Community Challenge.
